From the Publisher“For those who wonder at the meaning (and the why) of much contemporary high and low culture—and where did it spring from, where is it going—Mr. Gilbert offers plenty of interesting ideas, concepts, and explanations, using a wide range of examples (there are a generous amount of illustrations) that intrigue and illuminate.”—Iconoclast
"Alan Gilbert's collection of essays contributes to a distressingly small field-interdisciplinary studies of contemporary poetry. Very few books about recent poetry place the work in larger contexts-whether those be political, cultural, historical, or artistic... Gilbert's critiques hit the mark with occasional brilliance... What's wonderful about Another Future is its attention to marvelous, underappreciated poets and the care with which Gilbert reads them."
