Editor Salgado (U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) offers a substantial introduction and brings together profiles of some 50 poets. Like other volumes in the series, the aim is to provide career biographies, tracing the development of each author's canon, presenting expert appraisals of their accomplishments, and placing them in the context of literary history. Each entry occupies up to about eight pages and includes a photo portrait and some other b&w illustrations. A cumulative index for the series takes up about 80 pages.
