From Donald Justice and Mark Jarman through Jorie Graham, Helen Vendler, and Dennis O'Driscoll (among others), [this book] has a great deal to offer all readers with a serious interest in what has happened to poetry in the past quarter century. I can think of no better place to begin one's education in the craft of poetry. This is a rich and deeply rewarding anthology, one that extends and modifies that great tradition of criticism that began, in the twentieth century, with T.S. Eliot, whose writing serves as a touchstone throughout this volume."--Jay Parini, from p. [4] of cover." ;
