This anthology offers the most substantial collection of work by the Language Poets now available, along with 130 pages of theoretic statements by the poets represented. As such, it does for a new generation of American poets what Don Allen's New American Poetry did for an earlier generation. Poets represented include Bruce Andrews, Charles Bernstein, Clark Coolidge, Michael Davidson, Ray DiPalma, Robert Grenier, Lynn Hejinian, Fanny Howe, Susan Howe, Bernadette Mayer, Michael Palmer, Bob Perelman, Barrett Watten, and Hannah Weiner."This historic anthology brings into long needed focus the only serious and concerted movement in American literature of the past two decades. It will be indispensable". -- Peter SchjeldahlSilliman, Ron is the author of 'In the American Tree' with ISBN 9780915032341 and ISBN 0915032341.
