Synopsis

"American Poetry Now" is a comprehensive collection of the best work from the renowned "Pitt Poetry Series". Since its inception in 1967, the series has been a vehicle for America's finest contemporary poets. The series list includes Poet Laureate Billy Collins, Toi Derricotte, Denise Duhamel, Lynn Emanuel, Bob Hicok, Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner Ted Kooser, Larry Levis, Sharon Olds, Alicia Suskin Ostriker, Virgil Suarez, Afaa Michael Weaver, David Wojahn, Dean Young, and many others. Throughout its forty-year history, the "Pitt Poetry Series" has provided a voice for the diversity that is American poetry, representing poets from many backgrounds without allegiance to any one school or style. "American Poetry Now" is a true representation of contemporary American poetry. Ed Ochester, series editor for nearly thirty years, has assembled a quintessential selection - along with biographies and photos, an enlightening introduction, and a suggested list for further reading, all in a highly accessible format. "American Poetry Now" is a sweeping anthology that will delight poetry fans, students, teachers, and general readers alike.
