Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The highly selective magazine Antaeus has long tended to favor poetry of a brooding, moralistic nature, and consequently there is little humor or contagious joy or even pathos in this collectionthat is to say, while there is a lot of quality, there is not very much variety. In the midst of so much sameness, however, the truly distinguished poets are all the more visible: C. P. Cavafy, Gloria Fuertes, Carolyn Kizer, Philip Levine, Gregory Orr, Mark Strand, C. K. Williams. The book is worth having primarily for these writers and for a literary oddity, a "Great American Poem" of 102 lines, each by a different poet, that took six years to compose.

Format: Paperback
This is a very enjoyable collection. There are plenty of well-known poets here (W.H. Auden, Anne Sexton, James Wright,John Berryman, Sylvia Plath, Hart Crane, etc., etc.) and many of the less famous as well. Includes mostly poetry from the 1960s to the early 80s, though there is some earlier material as well. Another nice feature is the sizable number of fine translations from poets not often found in American anthologies. Fairly decent range of styles, though there is nothing here that's really experimental or avant garde. Overall, a nice book for poetry lovers to browse through. I recommend it!
