A new edition of this groundbreaking anthology revisits postmodernism as a twenty-first-century movement.Postmodern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology galvanized attention on its publication in 1994, making “the avant-garde accessible” (Chicago Tribune) and filling “an enormous gap in the publication annals of contemporary poetry” (Marjorie Perloff).
