For fall 2000, Conjunctions completes the second of its ambitious two volume project that began with the American Fiction issue, published this spring. Conjunctions: 35, American Poetry: States of the Art, presents some 75 American poets whose work explores and redefines contemporary American poetry and where it may be headed in the future.
American Poetry gathers newly commissioned and unpublished work from a diverse group of poets -- young voices to recognized masters -- all of whom practice their art at the front edge of innovation. Here is a collection that promises to be a necessary tool for anyone interested in the luminous and diverse states of the American poem as it enters its new century.
