From the powerful poems of Nobel prizewinner Czeslaw Milosz to the articulate voice of award-winning American poet Robert Hass, this magnificent collection provides a unique cross section of great modern poetry. All originally published in ANTAEUS, one of the most important literary journals of the past two decades, these works ring out with the familiar voices of long-recognized poets such as William Carlos Williams...poignant lines from today's most notable women writers such as Louise Gluck and Adrienne Rich...and verse from outstanding international poets--Poland's Zbigniew Herbert, Greece's prolific Yannis Ritsos, England's famous John Fowles. The wide spectrum of poems selected from ANTAEUS creates a rare, comprehensive portrait of poetry in the twentieth century...and a volume destined to become a classic. Book jacket.
