About

Overview

Salem’s comprehensive coverage of poets and poetry continues with this two-volume supplement to the Critical Survey of Poetry (14 volumes, 2011). Containing 200 all new entries in two volumes, this collection of biographical profiles brings the Critical Survey up to the present day. The articles detail the lives and works of poets who have been active in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries who did not appear in the original 14-volume set. We’ve included profiles of such popular poets as Eileen Myles, Walter Griffin, Morgan Parker, Javier Zamora, Dawn Lundy-Martin, IN-Q, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, and David Daniels. Also covered are critically-acclaimed poets who have been recognized with major awards, including recent winners of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Award for Poetry, and the Ruth Lilly Prize.

Each poet essay focuses on a single poet and includes an analysis of their significant individual poems or collections. Essays begin with full data on dates and places of birth and/or death, and a list of the poet's "Principal Poetry." Next is a brief overview of "Other Literary Forms" and two longer sections, "Achievements" and "Biography." The longest section, "Analysis," discusses the poet's work and examines several poems. The final section includes a bibliography containing up-to-date resources for further study.

In addition, the introduction to Critical Survey of Poetry: Contemporary Poetry thoroughly surveys recent schools and literary movements such as the new formalism, slam and spoken word poetry, language poetry, ecopoetics, and more.
