Synopsis: An anthology of contemporary poets presents works that reflect the diversity in American poetry

Review: "The daily routine of our lives can be good and even wonderful, but there is still a hunger in us for the mystery of the deep waters, and poetry can fulfill that hunger." So writes James Tate, editor of the 1997 edition of Best American Poetry. The poems that follow his essay bear out the claim. Including work by Allen Ginsberg, Denise Levertov, Mark Strand, and other first-rate poets, the 1997 collection again delights the reader with the variety and quality of poetry now being written. Here is a taste, from Mark Strand's contribution, "Morning, Noon and Night": "Whatever the starcharts told us to watch for or the maps / Said we would find, nothing prepared us for what we discovered. / We toiled in the shadowless depths of noon, / While an alien wind slept in the branches, and dead leaves / Turned to dust in the streets." This series consistently produces collections that are essential reading for poetry lovers.

Book Description Scribners, 1997. hardcover. Condition: Very Good In Dustjacket. 1st edition. New York. 1997. September 1997. Scribners. 1st Printing. Very Good In Dustjacket. ISBN:0684814544. . 268 pages. hardcover. . Jacket design by Julie Metz. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Celebrating its 10th anniversary, ‘The Best American Poetry 1997’ includes dazzling examples of verse and prose poems by established figures and exciting newcomers. Contributors include such well-known poets as Donald Hall, Mark Strand, and John Ashberry, as well as emerging poets Billy Collins, Linda Gregerson, and others. . . ‘For the anthology’s 10th anniversary, Pulitzer Prize-winning guest editor Tate has selected a fine array of work by both the old guard (Ginsberg, Ashbery, Ammons, Strand, Walcott) and such talented but less familiar poets as Nin Andrews, Joshua Clover, Matthew Lippman and Maureen Seaton. What unites these various voices is a distinctive, plain-spoken diction; as Tate notes in the introduction, today’s poets ‘speak the language of our time.’ Examples include poet/performance artist Jayne Cortez’s bizarre yet stirring ‘The Heavy Headed Dance’ (‘I am dancing &/ on my head/ is the spotted skunk/ whose scent did not protect it/ from Mr. & Mrs. Archibald of Texas’); Charlie Smith’s paean to beds (‘Terrible beds, soft beds, wily, elusive beds’); and Charles Wright’s professorial litany: ‘I think of landscape incessantly,/ mountains and rivers, lost lakes/ Where sunsets festoon and override,/ The scald of wheat fields, light-licked and poppy-smeared.’ Plugging into a peculiarly American form of spoken observation, the poems draw us sharply sometimes painfully as in Karen Volkman’s depiction of Miami in ‘Infernal’ into particular places and times. Contributor’s notes and comments, some running several pages, provide welcome context and, often, entertainment (‘I seemed unable to avoid sounding like a fawning, overzealous, possibly annoying, dithering nut’ from Amy Gerstler). The whole is graceful, unpedantic and inclusive. David Lehman is the series editor.’ - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. . . inventory #24221. Seller Inventory # z24221
