Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive overview of America's vast poetic heritage, Three Centuries of American Poetry features the work of some 150 of our nation's finest writers. It includes selections from Anne Bradstreet, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, e. e. cummings, Wallace Stevens, Robert Frost, and Gertrude Stein, as well as significant works of lesser-known American poets.

From the Revolutionary and Civil Wars to the Romantic Era and the Gilded and Modern Ages, this unrivaled anthology also presents a memorable array of rare ballads, songs, hymns, spirituals, and carols that echo through our nation's history. Highlights include Native American poems, African American writings, and the works of Quakers, colonists, Huguenots, transcendentalists, scholars, slaves, politicians, journalists, and clergymen.

These discerning selections demonstrate that the American canon of poetry is as diverse as the nation itself, and constantly evolving as we pass through time. Most important, this collection strongly reflects the peerless stylings that mark the American poetic experience as unique. Here, in one distinguished volume, are the many voices of the New World.

Synopsis:

Vastly more comprehensive than any other anthology of American poetry on the market today, "Three Centuries of American Poetry" contains the work of more than 120 American poets — more than three times more poets than the competition includes — with historical, critical, and biographical notes on these poets and their poems.

Award-winning teacher, poet, and translator Allen Mandelbaum, along with distinguished scholar Robert Richardson — two of our foremost scholars of literature — present a fresh interpretation of the American poetic canon, including, popular verse and ballads, in a single volume that will reshape our conceptions and become a standard text.
