Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
There are almost 200 poets represented here, none born before 1960. The editors' criteria for inclusion in this anthology were young poets who had already published or were in the process of publishing a full-length book with an established press. They asked each poet for poems they considered "representative" of their work. An interesting fact that emerged in recruiting writers indicated that 92% of the work was published outside of New York and Boston, mainly by small and university presses, places often on small budgets who are yet still willing to take chances on people they believe in, poets who produce innovative, high quality work. The collection reflects both the emergence of performance poetry and a new formalism as well as adherence to more traditional forms. Many pieces reflect on younger days: the angst of adolescence, the attraction of danger, and the loss of innocence. Carole Bernstein's short piece "The Cup of Coffee," on the death of her mother, expresses the inexpressible grief of children, often called forth by adults in unexpected ways. The tragedy of AIDS, experienced by young poets in the loss of loved ones, is one example of the impact of contemporary issues on this generation of poets. Justin Chin's piece, "Why He Had to Go," is raw in its anger, the first stage of grief. Written as a prose poem, it works well in expressing seemingly disjointed memories. Many of the poets tell stories, many of them urban tales, but there are some like Judy Jordan who seek refuge in nature. In her piece "Winter," she speaks of silence: "I wish that silence held some answer or passage/ to forgetting. I would go to it/ with its hesitant and dangerous tacks,/ its seepage intonight like shadows slipping into bodies. " This collection also reflects the country's increased ethnic diversity. Kevin Powell writes a jazzy tribute to Langston Hughes in "Genius Child." Virgil Suarez gives us "Song for the Sugar Cane," a love song to Cuba. Reetika Vazirani introduces Mrs. Biswas, an Indian Christian woman, cast adrift in religious wars. This anthology would be a valuable resource for a contemporary American poetry class. There is some explicit material but if read in the context of present-day America, it is justified. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Carnegie Mellon Univ. Press, 480p, 24cm, $24.95. Ages 16 to adult. Reviewer: Sue E.
