Seven chronologically arranged essays―every covering kind of a decade from 1908 through 1988―plus two special-focal point essays on black and feminine poets, an introduction by Ed Folsom, and a preface by editors Jack Myers and David Wojahn, outline the important, creative, aesthetic, and cultural forces at work within the American poetry of this century. A number of contributors, including Michael Heller, Richard Jackson, and Jonathan Holden, have recently published essential book-length important studies of their essay area; all have published well-regarded collections of their very own poetry.
