Penguin's landmark poetry anthology, perfect for learning poems by heart in the age of ephemeral media

 

Recipient of the Academy of American Poets' Wallace Stevens Award (Dove)

Rita Dove, Pulitzer Prize winner and former Poet Laureate of the United States, introduces readers to the most significant and compelling poems of the past hundred years in The Penguin Anthology of Twentieth-Century American Poetry. Now available in paperback, this indispensable volume represents the full spectrum of aesthetic sensibilities--with varying styles, voices, themes, and cultures--while balancing important poems with vital periods of each poet. Featuring works by Mary Oliver, Derek Walcott, John Ashbery, Gwendolyn Brooks, Kevin Young, Terrance Hayes, Li-Young Lee, Joanna Klink and A.E. Stallings, Dove's selections paint a dynamic and cohesive portrait of modern American poetry.
