Now available in paperback, this indispensable volume represents the full spectrum of aesthetic sensibilities--with varying styles, voices, themes, and cultures--while balancing important poems with vital periods of each poet. Featuring works by Mary Oliver, Derek Walcott, John Ashbery, Gwendolyn Brooks, Kevin Young, Terrance Hayes, Li-Young Lee, Joanna Klink and A.E. Stallings, Dove's selections paint a dynamic and cohesive portrait of modern American poetry.
