One of the premier single-volume anthologies available. * Library Journal *
This modest Chicago monthly has featured not only many of the 20th century's greatest poets, but also many of their famous poems. It is pleasant to think, given everything that Poetry has meant to literature in the last 100 years and everything it may yet mean to generations of readers that it will not have such troubles in the future. -- David Yezzi * The Philadelphia Inquirer *
It is a fitting collection that not only features their work, but helped place them in the pantheon. -- Richard Wakefield * The Seattle Times *
This anthology makes clear that American poetry is as powerful, diverse, and vibrant as ever. * The San Diego Union-Tribune *
For the LOVER of poetry there is much to savor here... -- Ron Smith * Times-Dispatch *
A Who's Who of American verse...a landmark collection.... Highly recommended. * Library Journal *
Superb and invaluable...comprehensive and thrilling...a veritable history of twentieth-century poetry in English.... A tremendous resource. * Booklist, Starred Review *
A great catch...I so thoroughly enjoyed this book that every time I lay eyes on it I can't help picking it up - even if it is for the hundredth time. * Kliatt *
The two kinds of anthology-that of summary and that of advocacy-will suffice to define the type of Parisi's book. -- James Matthew Wilson * Contemporary Poetry Review *
