From the Inside Flap:

"Donald Allen's prophetic anthology had an electrifying effect on two generations, at least, of American poets and readers. More than the repetition of familiar names and ideas that most anthologies seem to be about, here was the declaration of a collective, intelligent, and thoroughly visionary work-in-progress: the primary example for its time of the anthology-as-manifesto. Its republication today—complete with poems, statements on poetics, and autobiographical projections—provides us, again, with a model of how a contemporary anthology can and should be shaped. In these essentials it remains as fresh and useful a guide as it was in 1960."—Jerome Rothenberg, editor of Poems for the Millennium

"The New American Poetry is a crucial cultural document, central to defining the poetics and the broader cultural dynamics of a particular historical moment."—Alan Golding, author of From Outlaw to Classic: Canons in American Poetry

About the Author:

Donald Allen (1912-2004) was the editor of The Collected Poems of Frank O'Hara (California, 1995) and coeditor of The Collected Prose of Charles Olson (California, 1997).
