Poetry Anthologies

$29.95 Paperback, 978-0-87451-918-1

Today's poets provide a new spin on Greek myths.

This collection offers myriad fresh, and often dazzling, interpretations of Greek myths at a time of renewed excitement about the role of myths and other archetypes in our culture, and about the spiritual themes which many of the poems suggest. The range is broad, from celebrated authors such as Rita Dove, Louise Glück, Mark Strand, and Stephen Dobyns, to such respected emerging poets as Diann Blakely, Reginald Shepard, Mary Jo Bang, and Carl Phillips.

DEBORA DE NICOLA Visiting Professor of English Literature and Creative Writing at Massachusetts College of Art, is author of Where Divinity Begins (1994) and two chapbooks.
