"The tradition of weird poetry is one that stretches back for millennia, to the earliest literary expression of the human race. In this new volume ?the first comprehensive historical anthology of weird, horrific, and supernatural poetry in more than 50 years ?the editors have rightly begun their survey of weirdness in verse with Homer ?s Odyssey, proceeding through Greek, Latin, and medieval verse to such towering poets of English and American literature as Coleridge, Shelley, Poe, Tennyson, and Longfellow. With the dawn of the 20th century, such leaders of horrific prose as H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Donald Wandrei, and Robert E. Howard came to the fore. Our own day has seen a remarkable resurgence in weird poetry, and such poets as Richard L. Tierney, Bruce Boston, W. H. Pugmire, and Ann K. Schwader have added to a legacy that stretches back to the dawn of time."--Publisher's website.
