Contemporary American Poetry is an anthology featuring generous poetry selections from well-known and respected writers, chosen and commented upon by the writers themselves. In straightforward, conversational language, each poet provides original commentary that presents the backstory of the poems they've selected and offers an extended explanation into the aesthetic and artistic choices they made in their creation. Along with advice, instruction, and exercises on the craft of writing, these master poets provide insight and motivation suitable for aspiring and experienced poets, creative writing teachers, and those readers who endeavor to place poetry in their lives. The result, a distinctive collection of poems, accompanying commentaries, and exercises that stimulate the imagination, is an unmatched resource for classrooms or the individual learner.
