Poems for the Millenium V 1 - The University of California Book of Modern & Postmodern Poetry - From Fin-De-Siecle

£20.00

Product description

This text captures the essence of the dramatic changes made in poetry at the end of the 20th century and it reveals the revolutionary concepts at the very heart of 20th-century poetry. International in their coverage, these volumes depart from the established poetic modes that grew out of the 19th-century and instead bring together the movements that radically altered the ways that art and language express the human condition.;The first volume offers three "galleries" of individual poets - figures such as Mallarme, Stein, Rilke, Tzara, Mayakovsky, Pound, H.D., Vallejo, Artaud, Cesaire and Tsvetayeva. Also included are sections dedicated to some of the most significant pre-World War II movements in poetry and the other arts: Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, Objectivism and Negritude. The second volume extends the gathering to the present, forming a synthesizing, global anthology that aims to surpass other collections in its international scope and experimental range.
