From Library Journal:

The second of a three-volume history of American poetry aimed at a college audience, this commonsensical, plain-written study provides readers with a base on which to build an appreciation for how our poetry developed from Whitman, covered in the first volume, to Lorine Niedecker. The discussions in this volume of Dickinson, Frost, and the Modernists are sound if standard, but a look at the Harlem Renaissance, McKay, Cullen, and Hughes is well done. Although experienced readers will find much that is familiar, a chapter on the Fugitives and Objectivists clarifies obscurities in Zukofsky. A student first encountering, say, Hart Crane or Stein, has another helpful tool, free of critical cant and superior to "McCrit" guides.
