Models of the Universe: An Anthology of the Prose Poem / Edition 1by Stuart Friebert, David Young
Pub. Date: 03/10/1995
Publisher: Oberlin College Press
Here at last is a comprehensive anthology of one of the world's most fascinating literary hybrids. This strange sub-genre encompasses the history of modern poetry, from its beginnings in romanticism (Bertrand, Turgenev, Baudelaire), its adolescence in Symbolism (Mallarme, Rimbaud, Trakl), its maturity in high modernism (Stein, Williams, Kafka, Montale, Follain, Char, Vallejo, H.D., and others), and its middle age in post-modernism (Cortazar, Bishop, Ashbery, Simic, Edson, Bly...) up to the present.
