This product is currently sold out.
Ed. by Miller Williams, University of Arkansas.
Designed by Jack Ribik.
Cover ill. by Kathleen Anderson.
This volume is an arguably definitive snapshot of contemporary poetry in 1972: by no means attempting to be exhaustive, this anthology still gives an air of abundance, nodding to the generative energy that brought these voices together at this particular point at that particular time. The design is generous, with the poet’s photos and biographies accompanying a selection of their poems, under their names in retro typographic headings of every large-format page. Featuring: John Berryman, Elizabeth Bishop, Gregory Corso, Robert Creeley, Joyce Carol Oates, Charles Olson, Sylvia Plath, James Wright, and more.
