A comprehensive survey of California poetry over the past 150 years
California Poetry: From the Gold Rush to the Present is a groundbreaking new book presenting the work of 101 writers, the first historical anthology to provide a comprehensive survey of California poetry. An authoritative yet accessible collection, it brings together 150 years of the finest California poetry by authors of all schools and ideas. California Poetry also reveals the state's rich cultural and environmental legacy, from the early days of Spanish settlers to the more recent emergence of the Asian and Latino worlds: a reflection of lives closely tied to mountains, deserts, verdant valleys, and the vast shoreline of the Pacific Ocean.
