Poetry Nation: North American Anthology of Fusion Poetry

Poetry Nation: North American Anthology of Fusion Poetry Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The best poetry being written and performed today, in Canada and the United States, is by an emerging generation of poets who "fuse" the words of oral and the written traditions. These are poets comfortable in print or squinting under the stage lights, whose work crosses all boundaries — performances, spoken word, Gen-X, Web-page poems, slams, and MTV-style tele-poetics. Poetry Nation is the first anthology to comprehensively trace the roots of performance and spoken word — from the beat generation to today's sound poets.

Poetry Nation is a compelling overview of all the movements in current "alternative" poetry, with special attention to women, gay, Black, Asian, and indigenous writers. Major figures are represented alongside the most exciting young voices. The anthology features Allen Ginsberg's last poem and a newly-discovered poem by Ian Stevens. One hundred cutting-edge poets including Sandra Cisneros, Ras Baraka, Nicole Blackman, Louise Bak, Golda Fried, and Hal Sirowitz.
