The Oxford book of American poetry( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,964 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection redefines the great canon of American poetry from its origins in the 17th century right up to the present. It features the work of more than 200 poets, almost three times as many as the 1976 edition. The book includes not only writers born since the previous edition, but also many fine poets overlooked in earlier editions or little known in the past but highly deserving of attention. Many more women and African-American poets are represented, and unexpected figures such as the musicians Bob Dylan, Patti Smith and Robert Johnson have a place.--From publisher description

The last avant-garde : the making of the New York School of Poets by David Lehman( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Avant-Garde is a richly detailed portrait of one of the most significant movements in American arts and letters. Covering the years 1948 to 1966, the book focuses on four fast friends - John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch, and James Schuyler - the poets at the center of the New York School. They were both acolytes and catalysts. Enthralled with the bold experiments of painters like Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock, each came to New York filled with the ideas that would revolutionize poetry and greatly influence writers, visual artists, musicians, and composers up to the present day. Lehman brings to life the exhilarating creative ferment of the time and place, the relationship of great friendship to great art, and the powerful influence a group of visual artists, especially Jane Freilicher, Larry Rivers, and Fairfield Porter, had on the literary efforts of the New York School

The stamp of impulse : abstract expressionist prints by David Acton( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Stamp of Impulse is the first in-depth examination of the influence of Abstract Expressionism on printmaking. In his discussion of prints by one hundred pioneer Abstract Expressionist printmakers from across the country, David Acton provides a new, comprehensive view of the American graphic arts at midcentury. Featured are masters of the New York School such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Nell Blaine, and Louise Nevelson; and printmakers who worked in Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, including such remarkable California artists as Richard Diebenkorn and Claire Falkenstein. The broad selection presents an exciting vision of the open exploration and stimulation interdependence of the arts during this dynamic period. Essays on the relationships of jazz musicians and artists by David Amram, and of poets and artists by David Lehman, along with period photographs of artists, workshops, musicians, and authors, help to conjure a vivid image of the era."--Jacket

"The acclaimed annual, The Best American Poetry, is the most prestigious showcase of new poetry in the United States and Canada. Each year since the series began in 1988, David Lehman has contributed a foreword, and this has evolved into a sort of state-of-the-art address that surveys new developments and explores various matters facing poets and their readers today. This book collects all twenty-nine forewords (including the two written for the retrospective "Best of the Best" volumes for the tenth and twenty-fifth anniversaries.) Beginning with a new introduction by Lehman and a foreword by poet Denise Duhamel (guest editor for The Best American Poetry 2013), the collection conveys a sense of American poetry in the making, year by year, over the course of a quarter of a century"--
