Contemporary American Poetry is an anthology featuring generous poetry selections from highly-respected and up-and-coming writers, chosen and commented upon by the writers themselves. In straightforward, conversational language, each poet provides original commentary that reveals the aesthetic and artistic choices they made in their creation. Along with advice and exercises on the craft of poetry-writing, these master poets provide the "inside scoop" on serious poetic issues such as voice, style, structure, revision, audience, publishing, among other topics, as well as the insight and motivation suitable for aspiring and experienced poets, creative writing teachers, and others who endeavor to place poetry in their lives. The result--a distinctive collection of poems, illuminating commentaries, and exercises that stimulate the imagination--is an unmatched resource for the individual learner. For those interested in contemporary American poetry.
