Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Family Portrait doesn't just rewrite the history of the prose poem in America—it sets the record straight. Murphy's scholarly introduction sets the stage for a book that traces the history of American prose poetry from 1900–1950. Simply put, this collection belongs on every poet's—and poetry lover's—bookshelf. No one will be able to write about the prose poem without referencing Family Portrait."—Peter Conners

The groundbreaking anthology of prose poetry collects over sixty voices including such well-known figures as Sherwood Anderson, William Lisle Bowles, Kay Boyle, e. e. cummings, H.D., Robert Duncan, T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Earnest Hemingway, Robert Lowell, Kenneth Patchen, Riding Jackson, Gertrude Stein, Jean Toomer, Thornton Wilder, and William Carlos Williams.

Synopsis:

Family Portrait doesn't just rewrite the history of the prose poem in America - it sets the record straight.
