Overview

This revisionist narrative of poetic change in the twentieth century challenges the accepted notions of what poetry is and can be in the new century and makes the case for the seminal place of poetry in contemporary culture.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Perloff's newest work offers refreshingly frank, controversial, and even inspiring ideas ... Perloff's readings refuse to reaffirm orthodoxies, presenting innovative perspectives on poets, early modernism and its relation to the current scene. Far from being a reactionary call to return to the past, Perloff's work envisions a bold continuation of modernism's earlier revolutionary impulses. 21st-Century Modernism is vital and necessary reading for anyone interested in the history of modern poetry and where it is going." PN Review

"The book commands respect, [...], not only for its energy and the precision of its readings, but for its refusal to surrender powers of arbitration from the artist to the teacher or theorist." Times Literary Supplement

"The heart of [Perloff's] book is her enthusiasm - a well-researched and carefully argued enthusiasm" The Virginia Quarterly Review
