Collated in the approach to the beginning of a new century, this volume is intended to capture the essence of the change modern poetry has undergone. The anthology reveals the revolutionary concepts at the heart of contemporary poetry. International in its coverage, the collected volumes bring together the poets and poetry movements that radically altered the ways that art and language express the human condition. Volume 2 offers a chronicle of the second "great awakening" of experimental poetry in the 20th century. Ranging from the period of World War II through the Cold War to the onset of the 21st century, this volume presents two "galleries" of individual poets such as Holan, Olson, Rukeyser, Jabes, Celan, Mac Low, Pasolini, Bachmann, Finlay, Ginsberg, Adonis, Rich, U Tam'si, Baraka, Takahashi, Waldman and Bei Dao. There are also samplings of local and international movements: the Beats, the Vienna Group, the Cobra poets and artists, the Arabic-language Tammuzi poets, the creators of a new "Concrete Poetry", the "postwar poets" of Japan, the Italian Novissimi and Avan-Guardia, the Chinese Misty Poets, and the North American Language Poets.
