    I read 20 or so sections from this for a creative writing theory class. Some of my favorite poets are not represented, and some of those who are seem less relevant. But it isn't a terrible anthology. I learned a lot. I read 20 or so sections from this for a creative writing theory class.

    The discussions and arguments addressed in many of the excerpts of this anthology can quite easily be applied to a broader perspective on the world and our cultures. As one who views the world through words, this anthology simply makes sense (perhaps with less than simple words, but once you've scoured the dictionary for more time than you've devoted to reading the words in the anthology, it "simply" makes sense).

    Not the greatest diversity here, but the essays and often either classics (if contemporary essays can ever be called classics) or stand-bys in the tradition. Nice book. I reference it often both for teaching and for my own curiosities.
