4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly worthwhile, with a few quirks, 20 July 2010

This review is from: Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology (Paperback)
Given 'postmodern poetry' is so vague a term, this anthology is actually a pretty useful guide to the second half of the twentieth century in American poetry and poetics. You won't find your Billy Collinses herein; it charts formal challenges and its apposite selection preserves the vitality of its poetic movements. I found it odd that it was ordered poet by poet when the selection from any one writer is a fairly unsatisfying representation of their work; a chronological-by-poem or movement-wise approach might have made a little more sense. Nevertheless, there are some excellent poems. A thoroughly worthwhile reference.
