Dana GioiaISBN: 0072400196; 9780072400199;
Book DescriptionWith the end of the 1900s, the time has come for a thorough assessment of one hundred years of poetry - from the widely acclaimed to the subtly influential - and with an eye to the importance and meaning of poetry in America. Compiled by three poets and poetry scholars - including 2002 American Book Award Winner Dana Gioia - this anthology presents American poetry across the twentieth century from Stephen Crane to Kevin Young. The collected works are arranged according to the major movements in American poetry, offering a valuable teaching resource for American Literature and Poetry courses.
