Book Description: New Poets: An Anthology brings together representative selections from thirty-five young American writers (all of them under forty and the majority still in their twenties and early thirties) who are among the finest and most promising working today. Experimenting with form, the revitalization of the lyric, and an undogmatic approach to the fundamental questions of language and writing, they offer a panoramic view of the revolution that is overtaking American poetry at the end of the century. This is the cutting edge, the avant-garde as it exists now. Subordinating their work to no precedents and no expectations, they stand at the dividing line between postmodernist aesthetics and the future. Painting, philosophy, cross-cultural myth, and the critique of popular culture all are implicated in the energies of these new poetries, which might, over-all, be described as Maximalism, conscious of tradition but not beholden to it.Perhaps what is most remarkable is that, in the market-driven nineties, with its cut-throat economics and diminished support for the arts, such a poetry has come into existence at all. One can only be impressed by the range and verve of this underground commitment to the fire of the written word. The anthology includes an introduction by Lisa Jarnot and an afterword by Christopher Stroffolino.

Book Description: This anthology of poetry collects 21st century American works by both established and emerging poets that deal with the public events, government policies, ecological and political threats, economic uncertainties, and large-scale violence that have largely defined the century to date. But these 138 poems by 50 poets do not simply describe, lament, or bear witness to contemporary events; they also explore the linguistic, temporal, and imaginative problems involved in doing so. In this way, the anthology offers a comprehensive look at contemporary American poetry, demonstrating that poets are moving at once toward a new engagement with public concerns and toward a focus on the problems of representation. A detailed introduction by the editors along with poetics statements by many of the poets add depth and context to a book that will appeal to anyone interested in the state and evolution of contemporary American poetry. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Book Description: Steven Gould Axelrod, Camille Roman, and Thomas Travisano continue the standard of excellence set in Volumes I and II of this extraordinary anthology. Volume III provides the most compelling and wide-ranging selection available of American poetry from 1950 to the present. Its contents are just as diverse and multifaceted as America itself and invite readers to explore the world of poetry in the larger historical context of American culture. Nearly three hundred poems allow readers to explore canonical works by such poets as Elizabeth Bishop, Robert Lowell, and Sylvia Plath, as well as song lyrics from such popular musicians as Bob Dylan and Queen Latifah. Because contemporary American culture transcends the borders of the continental United States, the anthology also includes numerous transnational poets, from Julia de Burgos to Derek Walcott. Whether they are the works of oblique avant-gardists like John Ashbery or direct, populist poets like Allen Ginsberg, all of the selections are accompanied by extensive introductions and footnotes, making the great poetry of the period fully accessible to readers for the first time.
