Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dazzling in its range, exhilarating in its immediacy and grace, this collection gathers together, from every region of the country and from the past forty years, the poems that continue to shape our imaginations. From Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop, John Ashbery and Adrienne Rich, to Robert Haas and Louise Gluck, this anthology takes the full measure of our poetry's daring energies and its tender understandings.

Synopsis:

From Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath, and John Berryman to Allen Ginsburg, John Ashbery, and Frank O'Hara, from Adrienne Rich, Audre Lord, and Rita Dove to Sharon Olds, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Henri Cole, here are the iconic poets of the past half-century, men and women who have used and re-shaped the American language in all its vigorous, daring, tender, and intimate depth and breadth.
