The way of exchange in james dickey's poems : 1957- 1967 Hanson, Cherie Frances


James Dickey's work as an artist grows out of the way he feels about life, and about the world of art. He believes that aesthetic experience can revitilize the reader, that it can give him a new vision. And because of the new vision the artist and the reader are united. The poem, therefore, becomes a very alive, vibrant medium. And during his poetic career James Dickey explores the possibility of poetry as a statement. He is never afraid to push a poem to the limits of experience. The result is sometimes a strange, and grotesque work of art. However, in his best moments James Dickey is capable of loading the poem with intense energy. And it is this energy which he hopes to transfer to the reader so that the reader can see the world with new eyes.
