A collection of poems from the iconic poets of the past half-century, from Robert Lowell to Yusef Komunyakaa, from Sylvia Plath to Heather McHugh. Dazzling in its range, exhilarating in its immediacy and grace, this collection gathers together, from every region of the country and from the past forty years, the poems that continue to shape our imaginations. From Robert Lowell and Elizabeth Bishop, John Ashbery and Adrienne Rich, to Robert Haas and Louise Gluck, this anthology takes the full measure of our poetry's daring energies and its tender understandings.
