Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With more than 150 poems and forty striking photographs, Poetry of the American West chronicles the imagery of the region's long and diverse cultural heritage. Featuring verse by more than seventy poets and spanning a period of more than five hundred years, this is the first anthology to include the wide range of voices from a land where cultural collisions are part of the territory. Covering the traditional and the exploratory, the ancient and the modern, ranging in tone from anger to celebration, Poetry of the American West carves a new path through this fascinating landscape.

Synopsis:

The imagery of the American West is chronicled over the course of its long and varied cultural heritage. Deming has selected 150 poems by 75 poets including protest poems of the Chicano farmworkers, campfire cowboy songs, sacred American Indian songs, and works by Willa Cather, Langston Hughes, Adrienne Rich, Walt Whitman and other canonical figures.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [317]-320) and index.
