This new edition is a thorough, thoughtful revision of a justly acclaimed introductory text in the reading of poetry. Knowing that students, when they choose, often prefer to plunge at once into poetry of their own century, the editors drew all the readings from modern and contemporary poetry, and provided apparatus to assist intelligent study.

About the Book

This Second Edition is a thorough, thoughtful revision of the acclaimed Modern Poems. The editors have undertaken two major changes to the text, making the anthology a more useful resource in teaching the work of individual poets. Whereas the previous edition sometimes offered only a single poem by a given poet, the Second Edition presents at least three poems by each poet, with the few exceptions being poets with significantly long poems. The editors have also expanded the author headnotes to set forth one or two critical points that invite students into the poems. Other noteworthy changes include the addition of 38 new poets representing a diversity of traditions, from canonical poets like Lewis Carroll to contemporary ones like Rita Dove, and more careful attention paid to ethnic poetry and poetry by women.
