    1. We owe a debt to Paul Hoover for whatever punishing politics he went through to get this past Norton, then survive in the Balkans of small press poetry I remember the jolt I first felt to see poets here that I d never have imagined Nortonized Joe Ceravolo, Hannah Weiner, John Godfrey, Barbara Guest, Bernadette Mayer, Ray DiPalma, Kathleen Fraser, Kenward Elmslie, Diane Wakoski, John Weiners, Diane Di Prima, and Amiri Baraka, to name a very few With word of a new edition under weigh though, Hoove [...]


    2. I won t go so far as to say that I wish Paul Hoover could take back the second edition to his seminal first edition of Postmodern American Poetry, because there are many treasures to be found in this book for those who care to look, but I am glad that the first edition is still in print.The first thing I did when I picked this book up at my library was to check that some of my favorite poems were still included and I pored over the list of poets to see who had been added.I am pleased to say that [...]


    3. How long did it take me to read this Uh, let s see, there was that friendly brontosaurus that flipped the pages for me after the T Rex injured my hand close call it s been awhile 106 poets w a few poems from each, an ending section of poetics essays I m going to try to write a capsule review Fool I ve never read an entire Norton Anthology before that I recall I mainly associate them w being a type of massive definitiveness that s acceptable to academia The Norton Poetry Anthologies having been c [...]


    4. I ve been ploughing through the Norton Anthology of Postmodern American Poetry, out of a sense of obligation than anything I am surprised, however, by the amount of pleasure I received Sure, there were many things that I would not care to read again, but the poets that I would sue to know better were not a few.I still think Charles Olson is over rated John Cage I read with anthropological interest rather than aesthetic delight Robert Duncan s mysticism is too hand wavy for me I am for Denise L [...]


    5. I can t sleep and there is a glass full of chicken bones on my desk There is a manuscript, a red pencil, an orange peel, and some wire cutters on my desk There are some scattered papers on my desk There is a desk on my desk There is a place in my desk that can fit a room full of bored poets I usually like to open this space up and pour a little whiskey in there and see what happens There is a copy of The Wasp Factory on my desk if you haven t read that book don t bother Today, I went to a readin [...]


    6. I found this volume a great adventure, introducing me to a number of poets I wasn t familiar with I think the book does a good job of showing what is out there without overemphasizing a particular voice or poetic Any anthology can be criticized for who is excluded an anthology is only an introduction, it s an invitation to follow the poets in the book to discover the work of other, equally important, writers who weren t included but who share a similar poetic vision It s not a closed volume, it [...]


    7. The most important collection of poems I own I bought this just as I was turning on to poetry, and I felt like every poet inspired me in different ways The editor did an excellent job showcasing the best poems of each poet And what I appreciated about it most is the detailed history of American poetry after WWII It gave me the foundation of my knowledge of the influential schools at work mainly the Beat poets, the New York School poets, and the Black Mountain poets For me, this anthology proved [...]


    8. I found this a little difficult to rate, as I really liked some of the selected works, while absolutely hating others So went with the 3 stars.



    9. I haven t read an entire Norton Anthology before but I thought I d do just that The Postmodern in this anthology s title is still defining itself in reaction to poetry written in the earlier part of the twentieth century and in reaction to the different movements within itself Black Mountain poetics, conceptualism, language poetry, flarf Because of this, a reader who isn t an insider must necessarily spend a lot of time in bafflement at exactly what is going on within a poem, sometimes a confusi [...]


    10. To call all of the poetry in this collection postmodern is a big misnomer But unsurprising given that the term has become a catch all adjective for almost anything avant garde Regardless of this minor quibble, I would say the anthology can serve as a good introduction to contemporary and particularly difficult American trends in poetry.


    11. Good anthology but it didn t have a lot of what I would call the best poems by included authors The selection amounts were also a bit too widely varied Good for readers to new this area of poetry, but if you have specific opinions about authors, the selections might leave you cold.



    12. Yes, it s a Norton Anthology, but still for me an indispensable resource in understanding the recent history and breadth of avant garde poets informing the possible in contemporary American poetry.


    13. I ve had this book since my senior year of college I ve never stopped reading from it It s too massive to finish for one




    14. Excellent introduction to contemporary poetry Contains selections from a lot of big names Ginsburg,Bukowski, Ashberry as well a lot of less known poets.
