Revolution of the Word: A New Gathering of American Avant Garde Poetry 1914-1945 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jerome Rothenberg has raised the anthology to an art form. Poems for the Millenium (U. of California, 1995/7) reevaluated modernism from a global perspective. America a Prophecy diversified the canon long before "multiculturalism". And his 1973 Revolution of the Word remains the unparalleled collection of American avant garde writing from between the wars. Out of print for 20 years, it is routinely xeroxed for college courses both because it contains works that are otherwise unavailable, and because it places some of the most popular writers of the century — e.e cummings, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein — in their original context. A classic and influential publication that deserves to be in every poetry collection.
