A big, satisfying overview of "non-academic" poetry through the end of the 20th century. There is much here that just can't be found elsewhere, and good editorial introductions to chapters about genres as diverse as beatniks, cowboy poetry, and slam. This could be the textbook for a very fun poetry class. ( )

This is an amazing, almost overwhelming collection of poetry. If you want to know what's been new and exciting in the poetry world for the past thirty years, check out this collection. ( )

I found this book at the library while searching for Jack Kerouk I think. I checked it out and loved so many of the poems. I started coping the ones I liked, then I realized, I'd end up copying the whole book! So, I had to add it to MY library. I love anything to do with bad boys.

Epigraph
Imagine Jack Micheline, half pint riding the left hip pocket of his holy corduroys, walking sunset, one arm around the sky, the other around the Earth, as he rages against the Clowns who've denied The Poet's Blood, then get a firm grip on your soul, bust the cover of Outlaw Bible and let the century gush.

Wanda Coleman, author Bathwater Wine
Dedication
This book is dedicated to Jack Micheline, greatest Outlaw Poet of all time, and to Outlaws everywhere, living or dead, who have stayed one step ahead of all laws, chasing after the lawless beauty of the imagination.
