Contemporary Poetry : A Retrospective from the Quarterly Review of Literature


Here in one volume is some of the most exciting poetry written during the last thirty years, culled from the pages of one of America's foremost literary magazines. The Quarterly Review of Literature has been among the first to present many significant poets of our time. In addition to publishing the work of new poets, it has made available little-known work of writers of established reputation. It has brought to the reading public both experimental and traditional verse, and foreign poetry in distinguished translations as well as poetry originally written in English. Its pages have been open, in the words of its editors, "to any work that reflects a dedication to ultimately painstaking art." This volume contains the work of 146 foreign and American poets. It is thus not only a remarkable anthology, but a valuable retrospective of the literary scene. Originally published in 1976. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
