Book DescriptionCALIFORNIA POETRY is the first historical anthology to provide a comprehensive survey of California poetry. This groundbreaking new book presents the work of 101 authors across two centuries, and includes poets as diverse as Ambrose Bierce, Yone Noguchi, Robinson Jeffers, Josephine Miles, Charles Bukowski, Ishmael Reed, Francisco X. Alarcon, and Marilyn Chin. With ample biographical and critical notes for each author, California Poetry goes beyond the limits of the ordinary anthologyand provides a detailed and often intimate account of the Golden State's rich but often neglected cultural history. "California...constitutes a separate and distinct literary region?one that can only be genuinely understood by reading works written by authors whose imaginations have been shaped by the state's unique geography, history, and culture." ?Dana Gioia, in the Introduction
