This is a landmark publication - the first anthology of 20th-century American poetry.

Written by three poetry scholars, including 2002 American Book Award winner Dana Gioia, this anthology spans the development of American poetry throughout the 20th century.

The first of its kind, this anthology includes both well-known poets and poems, and the work of talented poets often neglected by the critics.

Arranged according to major movements in American poetry (Modernist Poets, Harlem Renaissance, Midcentury Poets, Confessional Poets, Surrealist Poets, Deep Image Poets, etc.), "20th Century American Poetry" provides a comprehensive historical and cultural overview - a valuable resource for both literature students and poetry lovers.
