Featuring nearly 150 poems by over 80 American canonical poets, Beach Glass is an anthology of a particular kind of voice describing the universals of those impossible-to-name experiences. Editor Paul Molloy has provided "a sampling of American poetry that focuses upon significant and recognizable human feelings and responses to everyday life; in other words, a poetry of everyday people, of individuals and encounter." From Emily Dickinson to Mark Strand to Langston Hughes and more, Molloy has attempted to capture a mid-twentieth century sweep of those who have articulated a certain liminal space of American interiority through a poetry that is, to each of them their own, and to anyone reading now, a distinct poetic inheritance.
