As Cole Swensen argues in the introduction to this comprehensive new anthology, the long-acknowledged 'fundamental division' between experimental and traditional is disappearing in American poetry in favour of hybrid approaches that blend trends from accessible lyricism to linguistic exploration. The focus in "American Hybrid" is on the blend; the more than seventy poets featured here - including Jorie Graham, Albert Goldbarth and Lyn Hejinian - have found new and often unique ways to reconfigure the innumerable and sometimes conflicting voices of the past thirty years. The editors have crafted short introductory essays on each of the poets in the anthology, providing biographical backgrounds and positioning them within the current of contemporary poetry. This new anthology is essential reading for those who care about the present moment - and the future - of American verse.
