520    Vendler "examines the ways in which five great modern 
       American poets, writing their final books, try to find a 
       style that does justice to life and death. With 
       traditional religious consolations no longer available to 
       them, these poets must invent new ways to express the 
       crisis of death, as well as the paradoxical coexistence of
       a declining body and an undiminished consciousness....The 
       solution for one poet will not serve for another; each 
       must invent a bridge from an old style to a new one. 
       Casting a last look at life as they contemplate death, 
       these modern writers enrich the resources of lyric poetry"
