Twentieth-Century American Poetics : Poets on the Art of Poetry - 04 edition

Twentieth-Century American Poetics : Poets on the Art of Poetry (ISBN10: 0072414723; ISBN13: 9780072414721)
ISBN13: 978-0072414721
ISBN10: 0072414723

Summary: This comprehensive chronological anthology includes 58 essays on poetry by 53 poets. Starting with James Weldon Johnson and Robert Frost, the book offers diverse and often conflicting accounts of the nature and function of poetry. The collection includes rarely anthologized essays by Jack Spicer, Rhina Espaillat, Anne Stevenson, and Ron Silliman, as well as work by some of the finest younger critics in America, including William Logan, Alice Fulton, and Christian Wim morean.

Features :

  • Uniqueness. No book, in or out of print, matches this collection in the variety or depth of its coverage of poetics.
  • Selections and Organization. The unsurpassed variety of poets represented and the chronological organization make the book adaptable to survey courses, though it can also serve as a companion to any anthology of twentieth-century American poetry.
  • Brief Critical Biographies. Engaging, informative headnotes introduce each author included.
  • Experience and Expertise: The text has been compiled by three well-respected poet-scholars: Dana Gioia, winner of the 2002 American Book Award and chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts; David Mason, author of two award-winning collections of poetry, The Buried Houses and The Country I Remember; and Meg Schoerke, author of a collection of poems, Anatomical Venus, as well as reviews for such publications as The American Scholar, TriQuarterly, and The Hudson Review. The three are also co-authors of McGraw-Hill's Twentieth-Century American Poetry (2004). less
