The state of Tennessee is widely recognized as a home of great music, and its geographic regions are as distinct as Memphis blues, Nashville country, and Bristol old-time sounds. Tennessee’s literary heritage offers equal variety and quality, as home to the Fugitive Agrarian Poets, as well as a signature voice from the Black Arts Movement. Few states present such a multicultural panorama as does the Volunteer State.

The poems in The Southern Poetry Anthology, Volume VI: Tennessee engage the storied histories, diverse cultures, and vibrant rural and urban landscapes of the region. Among the more than 120 poets represented are Pulitzer and Bollingen Prize-winner Charles Wright, Brittingham Award-winner Lynn Powell, and Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize-winners Rick Hilles and Arthur Smith.

The book includes an introduction from renowned poet Jeff Daniel Marion, who in 1978 received the first literary fellowship from the Tennessee Arts Commission. Too, the book celebrates relatively young and gifted voices. This important anthology will stand for many years as the definitive poetic document for the state of Tennessee.

Conceived by Series Editor William Wright in 2003, The Southern Poetry Anthology is a multivolume project celebrating established and emerging poets of the American South. Inspired by single-volume anthologies such as Leon Stokesbury’s The Made Thing, Gil Allen’s A Ninety-Six Sampler, and Guy Owen and Mary C. Williams’ Contemporary Southern Poetry: an Anthology, The Southern Poetry Anthology aspires to provide readers with a documentary-like survey of the best poetry being written in the American South at the present moment.

Published exclusively by Texas Review Press, the series provides the most comprehensive representation of Southern poets currently available and is currently being used in university classrooms across the South.

About the Author:

JESSE GRAVES’ Tennessee Landscape with Blighted Pine won a Weatherford Award in Poetry and a Book of the Year award from the Appalachian Writers’ Association. Graves lives in Johnson City, Tennessee. PAUL RUFFIN, of Willis, Texas, is Texas State University System Regents’ Professor at Sam Houston State University, where he directs Texas Review Press. WILLIAM WRIGHT, of Marietta, Georgia, is author of five collections of poems, including Night Field Anecdote and Bledsoe.

Review:

When Southern literature is discussed, poetry tends to be left out of the conversation. And even when poetry gets a word in edgewise, it's usually the Fugitives who are doing all the talking, especially in a conversation about the poetry of Tennessee. To a degree this is fair, but to reflect on Tennessee poetry while failing to discuss the poets who have followed the Fugitives is a grave mistake that occurs far too often. Editors Graves, Ruffin, and Wright redress these oversights with their new volume, The Southern Poetry Anthology Vol. VI: Tennessee.  -- Quincy Rhoads, Chapter 16
