In the past few decades, poetry written about and around popular culture has become a major type of contemporary poetry and an important art for reflecting multicultural Americana. "Real Things" is a collection of over 150 poems by more than 130 poets - Native Americans, gays and lesbians, women, Hispanics, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Anglo Americans - representing the cultural diversity of the United States. Each poet creates a very different vision of popular culture in America, from viewpoints as both participants and observers and as representatives of various schools of poetry including beat, postmodern, and 'LANGUAGE' poetry.With subjects ranging from the influence of Mickey Mouse on child-raising to the relationship of Barbie to sex in America, from the societal effects of the movie "Psycho" to our fascination with dirty politics and Ralph Kramden, the poems in this anthology question and celebrate the attitudes that our society shares. Welcome to a postmodern pastiche of the tangible and intangible; the fabulous or frightening; and real things that we live with and love.
