Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry: Volume 2
Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry, Second Edition, contains poems by more than 115 poets born in 1910 or later, including many who have not been anthologized before. Editor Cary Nelson introduces students to a diverse selection of vital poetry, presenting both canonical and lesser-known selections by women, minority, and progressive writers only rediscovered in the past two decades. In addition to offering the most detailed annotations available in an anthology of this type and selected poems in the beautifully illustrated form in which they first appeared, this is also the first collection to give full treatment to American long poems and poem sequences. Ideal for courses in Contemporary American Poetry, American Literature, Contemporary Poetry, and American Studies, Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry introduces students to the last 100 years of our diverse poetic heritage.
