Publisher Description:
"The Swallow Anthology of New American Poets" gathers the work of thirty-five of the most compelling and talented new poets writing today. Groundbreaking anthologies of this kind come along once in a generation and, in time, define that generation. "The Swallow Anthology" identifies a group of poets who have recently begun to make an important mark on contemporary poetry, and their accomplishment and influence will only grow with time. The poets of "The Swallow Anthology" do not constitute a school or movement; rather they are a group of unique artists working at the top of their craft. As editor David Yezzi writes in his introduction, "Here is a group of poets who have, perhaps for the first time since the modernist revolution, returned to a happy detente between warring camps. This is a new kind of poet, who, dissatisfied with the climate of extremes, has found a balance between innovation and received form, the terror beneath the classical and the order underpinning the romantic. This new unified sensibility is no watered-down admixture, no easy compromise, but, rather, the vital spirit behind the most accomplished poetry being written by America's new poets."
