The Wesleyan Tradition

Four Decades of American Poetry


“Wesleyan’s characteristic independence in scooping up unfound poets and publishing them well—and in sustainiLibrary Journalng the ongoing publication of established writers like David Ignatow and James Tate—is shown to advantage in this anthology . . . The quality is as high as the range is broad.”—Publishers Weekly

“Having published nearly 250 books by more than 150 poets in 35 years, the Wesleyan series has gone further than any other in defining the prevailing trends and styles of postwar university-based poetry. ...Libraries concerned with building and maintaining a meaningful poetry collection are urged to enter a blank order for all the Wesleyan poetry program entries…They represent some of our more important younger poets and a few older members…[The program] is highly recommended.”—Library Journal

“A valuable collection that celebrates the unceasing vitality and fluidity of American poetry”—Booklist


"An absolutely fascinating and compelling anthology; it represents much of the best of the poetry that has been written in this country over the past forty years and a remarkable number of our finest poems as well. This anthology makes clear the seminal role that Wesleyan University Press has had in shaping the course, direction, and progress of poetry in America since the Fifties." —David St. John

"A splendid work that has been splendidly edited. It shows the tremendous commitment that the Press has made to contemporary poetry over the past forty years. And it both demonstrates and reminds us of the central position that the Wesleyan Poetry Series has had in American poetry since World War II. This is a decisive anthology."—Edward Hirsch
