The second edition features twelve new poets in addition to new work by Donald Justice, T. R. Hummer, Dave Smith, Pattiann Rogers, Andrew Hudgins, Henry Taylor, Gerald Barrax, Rodney Jones, and others. A number of the new additions are Mark Jarman, Cathy Smith Bowers, and Charlie Smith. Many teachers realize that one of the simplest ways to get their students to relate to poetry is to show them poems that contain landscapes and subjects they have in mind and can identify with. Leon Stokesbury has put together a richly varied collection used in classrooms not only within the South but in every single place the country as a means of studying the essential influence of southern poetry on American literature. With the publication of the second one edition of The Made Thing, Stokesbury has marked the end of the twentieth century and the upward thrust to prominence of southern writers. This collection serves as a substantial sampling of poets whose works span more than five decades and who explore the wealthy personal and cultural history that extends beyond the boundaries of the South.
