    Contemporary Poetry: A Retrospective from the "Quarterly Review of Literature"
    Book Description:

    Here in one volume is some of the most exciting poetry written during the last thirty years, culled from the pages of one of America's foremost literary magazines. TheQuarterly Review of Literaturehas been among the first to present many significant poets of our time. In addition to publishing the work of new poets, it has made available little-known work of writers of established reputation. It has brought to the reading public both experimental and traditional verse, and foreign poetry in distinguished translations as well as poetry originally written in English. Its pages have been open, in the words of its editors, "to any work that reflects a dedication to ultimately painstaking art." This volume contains the work of 146 foreign and American poets. It is thus not only a remarkable anthology, but a valuable retrospective of the literary scene.

    Originally published in 1976.

At that time publishing was difficult, paper scarce, money limited, and the age itself sufficiently turmoiled—clear signs that a literary magazine was needed. And happy, youthful innocence of the cost and the work involved assured us we were the ones to satisfy that need. Though Warren and I were new friends, he invited me to assist him in the editing. My interest then was (and has continued to be) mainly in writing, not in publishing, but I...
