Within the pages of this anthology, now in its second edition, you'll find 39 American poets from across the twentieth century. In his introduction, editor and Guggenheim fellow Donald Hall, describes the face of American poetry as "subjective." The American poem "reveals through images not particular pain, but general subjective life . . . The poet uses fantasy and distortion to express feeling."
