Product Description

The New American Poetry 1945-1960

Edited by Donald M. Allen

From the preface: "I have adopted the unusual device of dividing the poets into five large groups. Within each of the five sections the poets are ranked by year of birth, and their poems by year of composition as a means of showing the range and variety and sequence of development in an individual writer's work." sections include The Beat Generation and the New York Poets.

454 pages. 5.25" by 8"

Publishing Info: Grove Press, New York 1960
