Publisher Comments:

The history of poetry and of Poetry in America are almost interchangeable, certainly inseparable, wrote A. R. Ammons. Founded by Harriet Monroe in 1912, Poetry magazine established its reputation immediately by printing T. S. Eliot s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, Carl Sandburg s Chicago Poems, Wallace Stevens s Sunday Morning, and the first important poems of Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, William Carlos Williams, Robert Frost, and many other then unknown, now classic authors. Publishing monthly without interruption, Poetry has become America s most distinguished magazine of verse, presenting, often for the very first time, virtually every notable poet of the last nine decades an unprecedented record. Decade by decade, this bountiful ninetieth-anniversary anthology from Poetry includes the poems of the major talents along with several lesser known in all their variety: William Butler Yeats, Edgar Lee Masters, Sara Teasdale, D. H. Lawrence, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Vachel Lindsay, Robert Graves, May Sarton, Langston Hughes, W. H. Auden, Stephen Spender, Hart Crane, Robert Penn Warren, Dylan Thomas, e. e. cummings, Gwendolyn Brooks, James Merrill, John Ashbery, Frank O Hara, Randall Jarrell, Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, Robinson Jeffers, Theodore Roethke, Karl Shapiro, Anne Sexton, Thom Gunn, John Berryman, Sylvia Plath, Maxine Kumin, Ted Hughes, Adrienne Rich, and Galway Kinnell. In recent decades, Poetry has presented Seamus Heaney, Rita Dove, Billy Collins, Kay Ryan, Eavan Boland, Stephen Dunn, Mary Oliver, Yusef Komunyakaa, Jane Kenyon, James Tate, Sharon Olds, Louise Gluck, Marilyn Hacker, and many, many others. T. S. Eliot called Poetry an American institution. The Poetry Anthology is sure to be an American keepsake.

Review:

"Poetry is marking its ninetieth anniversary with the release...this comprehensive and thrilling anthology, a veritable history of twentieth-century poetry in English....In recounting the magazine's extraordinary history of aesthetic valor and improvised survival tactics, Parisi doesn't claim that all 29,000-plus poems by 4,725 authors published in 1,080 issues of Poetry were memorable, but he and coeditor Young still had to make hundreds of tough decisions to arrive at the more than 600 sterling poems collected here, poems by an array of poets past and living that include W. H. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath, James Merrill, Lisel Mueller, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Susan Hahn, that cover a grand spectrum of emotions, outlooks, and literary creativity." Booklist, starred review

Review:

"[A] landmark collection....There's groundbreaking work, which first appeared in Poetry and later became part of the canon (e.g., Wallace Stevens's "Sunday Morning"), as well as work by lesser-known poets (e.g., William Dickey's "The Poet's Farewell to His Teeth")....Highly recommended." Library Journal

Synopsis:

For 90 years "Poetry" has been America's most distinguished magazine of verse. This 90th-anniversary anthology may be the most bountiful collection of American poems ever published. It offers a record of poetic achievement as well as some of the vagaries, fads, fashions, and failures of the last 90 years.

Synopsis:

This ninetieth-anniversary anthology way be the most bountiful collection of American poems ever published.
