Olds, Sharon, Laux, Dorianne, Collins, Billy


YES, THE OTHER AMERICAN POETRY IS ALIVE & SIZZLING! As an alternative to the pervasive style of late 20th century verse, with its debilitating preference for the tepid, mannered, & opaque, Gorilla Press presents 40 maverick poets writing in the mother tongue. Work by Frank Bidart, Charles Bukowski, Raymond Carver, Wanda Coleman, Allen Ginsberg, Judy Grahn, Ronald Koertge, Dorianne Laux, Sharon Olds, Gary Snyder & 30 other brillant, accessible American poets. A deliciously good read! Cover art & 12 drawings by Charles Bukowski with 15 drawings by other contributors. "...funny, erotic, angry, politically immediate, & visceral. It is, as someone said, poetry for people wary of poetry. It is also the definitive collection of modern American poetry."--Ken Isso. "This anthology is definition by example of the most American of contemporary American poetic styles, whether you call it Beat or Easy or Barbaric Yawp or Maverick....It's the most important anthology of poetry I've come across in years."--William Packard.Olds, Sharon is the author of 'Maverick Poets An Anthology' with ISBN 9780961045425 and ISBN 0961045426.
