Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology


Postmodern American Poetry provides a deep and wide selection-411 poems by 103 poets-of the major poets and movements of the late twentieth century. Included are the leading Beat and New York School poets, the Projectivists, and "Deep Image" poets. Included, too, is the rich array of poetry written since 1975-language and performance poetry, the work of African American, Hispanic, Asian American, gay and lesbian, and women experimentalists. In addition, a final section of poetics-with writings by Frank O Hara, Denise Levertov, Jerome Rothenberg, Amiri Baraka, and Charles Bernstein, among others-provides valuable contexts for reading the poems.

    We owe a debt to Paul Hoover for whatever punishing politics he went through to get this past Norton, then survive in the Balkans of small press poetry. I remember the jolt I first felt to see poets h...

    I won't go so far as to say that I wish Paul Hoover could take back the second edition to his seminal first edition of Postmodern American Poetry, because there are many treasures to be found in this ...

    How long did it take me to read this?! Uh, let's see, there was that friendly brontosaurus that flipped the pages for me after the T-Rex injured my hand (close call) - it's been awhile. 106 poets w/ a...

    I can't sleep and there is a glass full of chicken bones on my desk. There is a manuscript, a red pencil, an orange peel, and some wire-cutters on my desk. There are some scattered papers on my desk. ...

    I found this volume a great adventure, introducing me to a number of poets I wasn't familiar with. I think the book does a good job of showing what is out there without overemphasizing a particular vo...

    The most important collection of poems I own. I bought this just as I was turning on to poetry, and I felt like every poet inspired me in different ways. The editor did an excellent job showcasing the...

    I haven't read an entire Norton Anthology before but I thought I'd do just that. The 'Postmodern' in this anthology's title is still defining itself in reaction to poetry written in the earlier part o...
