Anthology of Modern American Poetry, Second Edition, contains poems by more than ninety American poets born before 1910, including many who have not been anthologized before. Editor Cary Nelson introduces students to a diverse selection of vital poetry, presenting both canonical and lesser-known selections by women, minority, Native American, and progressive writers only rediscovered in the past two decades. In addition to offering the most detailed
annotations available in an anthology of this type and selected poems in the beautifully illustrated form in which they first appeared, this is also the first collection to give full treatment to American long poems and poem sequences.
Ideal for courses in Modern American Poetry, American Literature, Modern Poetry, and American Studies, Anthology of Modern American Poetry introduces students our diverse poetic heritage.

The Anthology of Modern American Poetry is one of the few anthologies that covers such a diverse group of poets and styles. It allows students to see contemporary poets working in traditional forms and experimentation, and it showcases poets from a wide range of ethnicities, socio-economic groups, and American geographies. Like America itself, this anthology shows how diverse groups of individuals influence and inform each other in heartbreakingly beautiful
ways. * Sian Griffiths, Weber State University
