The Anthology of Black Mountain College Poetry (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Founded in 1933 near Asheville, North Carolina, Black Mountain College fostered experimentation and interdisciplinary learning, placing the arts, including poetry, at the heart of its curriculum. As such, the college was home to and served as inspiration for many modern American poets. Some, including Robert Creeley, Denise Levertov, and Edward Dorn, appeared in Donald Allen's groundbreaking New American Poetry anthology, published in 1960, later becoming part of part of the American poetry canon. However, many of the Black Mountain College school of writers have been overlooked.

The Anthology of Black Mountain College Poetry features over fifty poets selected with an expansive critical lens, including works written by artists not typically seen as poets, including composer John Cage, architect Buckminster Fuller, and visual artist Josef Albers. Many years in the making, this book paints the clearest picture of the poetry and poets of Black Mountain College yet.
