Poets of the New Century picks up the thread of contemporary American verse where our earlier anthology, New American Poets of the '90s, left off.
Extensive and ambitious, this is the first comprehensive selection of the best and most exciting poetry to appear in this new century. Emphasizing young and mid-career poets, with the usual smattering of acknowledged veterans, this impressive collection of 450 pages contains both new and previously published work of what can honestly be termed "the best and the brightest" of a new generation of American poets. The poets are represented by as many as three poems apiece, and a notation of recent publications offers a starting point for more in-depth investigations of each writer's work.
Poets of the New Century is innovative, wide-ranging, and unashamedly provocative, yet firmly united by the vision of the editors. It is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the current and future trends of American verse.
