Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Postmodern American Poetry provides a deep and wide selection-411 poems by 103 poets-of the major poets and movements of the late twentieth century. Included are the leading Beat and New York School poets, the Projectivists, and "Deep Image" poets. Included, too, is the rich array of poetry written since 1975-language and performance poetry, the work of African American, Hispanic, Asian American, gay and lesbian, and women experimentalists.

In addition, a final section of poetics-with writings by Frank O'Hara, Denise Levertov, Jerome Rothenberg, Amiri Baraka, and Charles Bernstein, among others-provides valuable contexts for reading the poems.

Book News Annotation:

Destined to be the standard anthology of the last half century of American experimental poetry. Essential for every library.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Postmodern American Poetry is the first anthology since Donald Allen's groundbreaking collection to fully represent the movements of American avant-garde poetry.This groundbreaking anthology fills an enormous gap in the publication annals of contemporary poetry.
