Summary
Ten original essays by advanced scholars and well-published poets address the middle generation of American poets, including the familiar--Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, Randall Jarrell, and John Berryman--and various important contemporaries: Delmore Schwartz, Theodore Roethke, Robert Hayden, and Lorine Niedecker. This was a famously troubled cohort of writers, for reasons both personal and cultural, and collectively their poems give us powerful, moving insights into American social life in the transforming decades of the 1940s through the 1960s
