Understanding the current moment in poetry can be a difficult task, as the reader must sort among the avant-garde and mainstream, the traditional and the experimental. A welcome introduction to contemporary poetics, this collection represents one of the first attempts to chart the progress of a new generation of poets. Each chapter focuses on one poet, and includes a selection of poems, a brief statement of purpose by the poet, and a critical essay by a notable scholar. Working in forms ranging from the post-confessional lyric to documentary poetics, from the prose poem and the sonnet to sound poetry, these thirteen poets rank among the most notable and distinct of recent years. American Poets in the 21st Century will serve as a useful and enlightening guide for any reader interested in how new American poetry can look, feel, and sound. The enclosed CD includes each of the thirteen poets reading their work.

Poets include: Joshua Clover, Stacy Doris, Peter Gizzi, Kenneth Goldsmith, Myung Mi Kim, Mark Levine, Tracie Morris, Mark Nowak, D.A. Powell, Juliana Spahr, Karen Volkman, Susan Wheeler, and Kevin Young.

About the Author:

CLAUDIA RANKINE is the Henry G. Lee Professor of English at Pomona College and author, most recently, of Don’t Let Me Be Lonely (2004). LISA SEWELL is a professor of English at Villanova University and the author of Name Withheld (2006).

Review:

“American Poets in the 21st Century offers an intelligent map of innovative currents within the recent generation of U.S. poets. Rankine and Sewell have made a brilliant selection among poets for whom linguistic experiment, public critique, and lyric expressivity are no longer antagonists.” (Michael Davidson, professor of literature, University of California, San Diego)

“An essential guide for travelers into the world of contemporary poetry. Rankine and Sewell present a vibrant new generation of poets who synthesize a deep language consciousness with political and lyric practice.” (Elizabeth Gregory, author of Quotation and Modern American Poetry)
