Description
Filled with the best contemporary poetry from around the world, this unusually accessible anthology gathers together Nobel Prize -- winning poets such as Pablo Neruda, Seamus Heaney, and Derek Walcott along with lesser-known but equally enchanting poets like the Ugandan native Okot p'Bitek and Shuntaro Tanikawa of Japan. Also included are luminaries such as Jorge Luis Borges, Robert Lowell, Anna Ahkmatova, and Wole Soyinka. The Poetry of Our World features insightful essays from distinguished poets, scholars, and critics that provide the context within which a reader can appreciate the poems selected by each of them. The carefully chosen experts include Helen Vendler on the English-speaking world, K. Anthony Appiah on Africa, Carolyn Forche on Latin America, Sven Birkerts on Europe, and Anita Desai and Donald Keene, among others, on Asia. The end result is a unique anthology that is sure to be an indispensable guide through the world of contemporary poetry.
