Ivar Ivask Critical Essays

Introduction

Ivask, Ivar 1927–

Ivask is an Estonian-born poet and scholar now residing in America. His love and homesickness for the natural beauty of his native land inform his poetry. His verse is further marked by a palpably physical lyricism and acute sensitivity to nature. Ivask has been the editor of World Literature Today since 1967.
