August Kleinzahler says, Christopher Middleton is, and remains, a shocking man. One hardly knows where to begin...' There are few risks Middleton will not take in his poems. For six decades and more he has uncovered new dimensions in language. The last decade has been one of continuous discovery and extension. His English is an open medium, responding to Arabic, German, Spanish, French and other media. And English is eloquent in its nonsense as much as in its sense. His poems do not linger in the dank alleyways of self: he is always a maker and a shaper, of things that become durable resources for the reader, that refine and extend how we think, see and feel through formed language.

Anthony Hecht, now in his eightieth year, has earned a place alongside such poets as W. H. Auden, Robert Frost, and Elizabeth Bishop. Here under one cover are his three most recent collections–The Transparent Man, Flight Among the Tombs, and The Darkness and the Light. The perfect companion to his Collected Earlier Poems (continuously in print since 1990), this book brings the eloquent sound of Hecht’s music to bear on a wide variety of human dramas: from a young woman dying of leukemia to the tangled love affairs of A Midsummer Night’s Dream; from Death as the director of Hollywood films to the unexpected image of Marcel Proust as a figure skater. He glides with a gaining confidence, inscribes Tentative passages, thinks again, backtracks, Comes to a minute point, Then wheels about in widening sweeps and lobes, Large Palmer cursives and smooth entrelacs, Preoccupied, intent On a subtle, long-drawn style and pliant script Incised with twin steel blades and qualified Perfectly to express, With arms flung wide or gloved hands firmly gripped Behind his back, attentively, clear-eyed, A glancing happiness.

This book of later poems includes eleven out-of print books written between 1975 and 1994, as well as 49 unpublished poems. "In his later poetry. Joel Oppenheimer moved at once back in time and out in space. His New Spaces are thus our origins". David Landrey "Oppenheimer nurtured the discursive voice in his poems toward a paced deliberation of how he saw people, issues, and actions. His poetry does not rush to action. It moves along slowly, sorting out ways of approaching the center of feelings". Robert Bertholf. The Collected Later Poems contains poems collected in books written between 1975 and 1988. The volume begins with an useful introduction by Robert Bertholf; it contains poems from eleven out-of-print editions, beginning with "The Woman Poems"(1975), and ending with "New Hampshire Journal" (1994). It also contains 49 additional poems written but not published before Oppenheimer's untimely death. Oppenheimer was a master of the "occasional poem", and had a discursive style which encompasses his personal perceptions of life in and about the places where he lived. All readers of modern American poetry who are concerned about the legacy of William Carlos Williams will also recognize the importance of Joel Oppenheimer to the Black Mountain School of Poetry, and the New York School. The book is elegantly designed and includes drawings by John Dobbs, long-time friend of the poet.

Albert Gelpi's American Poetry after Modernism is a study of sixteen major American poets of the postwar period, from Robert Lowell to Adrienne Rich. Gelpi argues that a distinctly American poetic tradition was solidified in the later half the twentieth century, thus severing it from British conventions.

Considered by many to be the most characteristically American of our twentieth-century poets, William Carlos Williams "wanted to write a poem / that you would understand / ,,,But you got to try hard—." So that readers could more fully understand the extent of Williams' radical simplicity, all of his published poetry, excluding Paterson, was reissued in two definite volumes, of which this is the first.

Complete poems are bulky and too heavy to carry around. Collected poems pretend to be complete, but usually are not. Selected poems are altogether unpretentious and reader-friendly. But they can be problematic. Who decides what poems are important for inclusion in a volume of selected poems? When the selection occurs during the author’s lifetime, may one assume that the author was involved? What motivates the choice of one poem over another? How do readers’ preferences influence this choice? How do new readers and familiar readers of a poet negotiate the poems that are left out of the selection? The essays in this volume address these questions in a variety of ways, and also provide an overview of poetic writing from modernist poets to the present day, using selections from the 1940s until now. They offer new insight into the uses, both pedagogical and critical, of selection. Because Selected Poems usually address a large general public, these essays have also been written for all those who wish to know more about how these slimmer, more attractive volumes are produced.
