This anthology commemorates the 25th anniversary of the Pitt Poetry Series (1968-1993), which from modest beginnings has become a prominent poetry series in the United States. During this period, first under the editorship of Paul Zimmer and then Ed Ochester, 156 books by 101 poets were published. This collection provides generous selections - about 300 lines of verse - of the 45 poets currently in print in the series, as well as full-page photographs of each. More than just a commemorative volume, the anthology offers a cross section of much of the best American poetry being written. It offers work by many of the best known poets and work by exciting younger writers whose publication has always been a focus of the series. ""The Pittsburgh Book of Contemporary American Poetry"" is a useful and inexpensive anthology for classroom use in literature and creative writing courses, and a good general introduction to contemporary American poetry for the general reader. Poets included: Claribel Alegria; Debra Allbery; Maggie Anderson; Robin Becker; Siv Cedering; Lorna Dee Cervantes; Nancy Vieira Couto; Kate Daniels; Toi Derricotte; Sharon Doubiago; Stuart Dybek; Jane Flanders; Gary Gildner; Elton Glaser; David Huddle; Lawrence Joseph; Julia Kasdorf; Etheridge Knight; Bill Knott; Ted Kooser; Larry Levis; Irene McKinney; Peter Meinke; Carol Muske; Leonard Nathan; Sharon Olds; Alicia Suskin Ostriker; Greg Pape; Kathleen Peirce; David Rivard; Liz Rosenberg; Maxine Scates; Richard Shelton; Betsy Sholl; Peggy Shumaker; Jeffrey Skinner; Gary Soto; Leslie Ullman; Constance Urdang; Ronald Wallace; Belle Waring; Michael S. Weaver; Robley Wilson, David Wojahn; and Paul Zimmer.
