Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thirty years later, this innovative, cover-to-cover revision renders with fresh eyes and meticulous care the remarkable range of styles, subjects, and voices in English-language poetry. The newly titled --now available in two paperback volumes--includes 1,596 poems by 195 poets (half of the poems are new), from Walt Whitman and Thomas Hardy in the late nineteenth century to Anne Carson and Sherman Alexie in the twenty-first.  continues to be the most comprehensive collection of twentieth-century poetry in English. It richly represents the major figures, while also giving full voice to ethnic American poetries, experimental traditions, postcolonial poetry, and the long poem, eclipsing all other anthologies in scope, clarity, and balance.

Synopsis:

"The most acute rendering of an era's sensibility is its poetry," wrote the editors in their preface to the first edition.

Synopsis:

A new edition of the acclaimed anthology'"the most comprehensive collection of twentieth-century poetry in English available.
