Editorial Reviews


“For those who wonder at the meaning (and the why) of much contemporary high and low culture―and where did it spring from, where is it going―Mr. Gilbert offers plenty of interesting ideas, concepts, and explanations, using a wide range of examples (there are a generous amount of illustrations) that intrigue and illuminate.”―

"Alan Gilbert's collection of essays contributes to a distressingly small field-interdisciplinary studies of contemporary poetry. Very few books about recent poetry place the work in larger contexts-whether those be political, cultural, historical, or artistic... Gilbert's critiques hit the mark with occasional brilliance... What's wonderful about Another Future is its attention to marvelous, underappreciated poets and the care with which Gilbert reads them." ―


“As the theoretical bubble bursts, Alan Gilbert brings us back to the attention poetry demands, with its local nuances, terms, and conditions. With referential breadth and political acuity, Another Future deftly traces cultures in the making within the confines of social space.” (Ammiel Alcalay, author of From the Warring Factions)

“Gilbert is brilliant. With a clear and intelligent prose style that is intellectually rigorous and jargon-free, he has found a vital and useful vocabulary with which to describe and investigate what's really new in North American poetry.” (Peter Gizzi, author of Some Values of Landscape and Weather)

Format: Paperback
Another Future: Poetry And Art In Postmodern Twilight is an anthology of critical essays about contemporary poetry, art, culture, and politics by independent scholar and poet Alan Gilbert. Divided into three sections, "Considering How Material Documents Can Be", "Territories and Other Forms of Knowing", and "Meaning Politics Without Regrets", Another Future questions the social context of modern poetry and charters a discourse for thinking about contemporary culture in terms beyond post-modernism. A scrutiny so meticulous as to resemble a documentary, Another Future is especially recommended reading for students of modern poetry.
