An outstanding collection of the world’s best contemporary poetry selected by the editor of Antaeus magazine
From the powerful poems of Nobel Prize winner Czesław Miłosz to the articulate voice of award-winning American poet Robert Haas, this magnificent collection provides a unique cross section of great modern poetry. All originally published in Antaeus, these works ring out with the familiar voices of long-recognized poets, such as William Carlos Williams; poignant lines from today’s most notable women, such as Louise Glück and Adrienne Rich; and verse from outstanding international poets—Poland’s Zbigniew Herbert, Greece’s prolific Yiannis Ritsos, England’s famous John Fowles. The wide spectrum of poems selected from Antaeus creates a rare, comprehensive portrait of poetry in the twentieth century, and a volume destined to become a classic.
“Antaeus has never lost its flair for the adventurous or betrayed the touchstone of the highest standard in new literature.”—Nadine Gordimer

The highly selective magazine Antaeus has long tended to favor poetry of a brooding, moralistic nature, and consequently there is little humor or contagious joy or even pathos in this collectionthat is to say, while there is a lot of quality, there is not very much variety. In the midst of so much sameness, however, the truly distinguished poets are all the more visible: C. P. Cavafy, Gloria Fuertes, Carolyn Kizer, Philip Levine, Gregory Orr, Mark Strand, C. K. Williams. The book is worth having primarily for these writers and for a literary oddity, a "Great American Poem" of 102 lines, each by a different poet, that took six years to compose.
