American Hybrid : A Norton Anthology of New Poetry (ISBN10: 0393333752; ISBN13: 9780393333756)

ISBN10: 0393333752

Summary: This spirited anthology of contemporary Americanpoetry focuses on the new poem--the hybrid--a synthesis of traditional and experimental styles.
As Cole Swensen argues in the introduction to this comprehensive new anthology, the long-acknowledged "fundamental division" between experimental andtraditional is disappearing in American poetry in favor of hybrid approaches that blend trends from accessible lyricism to linguistic exploration. The focus in Amer
ican Hybrid is on the blend; the more than seventy poets featured here--includingJorie Graham, Albert Goldbarth, and LynHejinian--have found new and often unique ways to reconfigure the innumerable and sometimes conflicting voices of the past thirty years. The editors have crafted short introductory essays on each of the poets in the anthology, providing biographical backgrounds and positioning them within the current of contemporary poetry. This new anthology is essential reading for those who care about the present moment--and the future--of American verse.
