Modern American Poetry -a description from an amazing site:
'What makes MAPS unique is its emphasis on collaborative
process. MAPS is not a single, didactic edifice that hides its
agenda behind a veil of authority. It is a living, breathing
conversation between hundreds of poets, scholars, and readers,
constantly growing and presented in an eminently clear and
usable way. Extraordinary in its depth and breadth, and a
one-of-a-kind resource for teaching modern American poetry, MAPS
provides a single clearinghouse for some of the best criticism
on the best poets of our time.'
