Now in its second edition, The Vintage Book of Contemporary American Poetry has established itself in the decade since its original publication as an indispensable volume for everyone interested in poetry today, from poets and students and teachers of poetry to the ever-increasing audience for contemporary poets.

From Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath, and John Berryman to Allan Ginsburg, John Ashbery, and Frank O'Hara, from Adrienne Rich, Audre Lord, and Rita Dove to Sharon Olds, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Henri Cole, here are the iconic poets of the past half-century, men and women who have used and re-shaped the American language in all its vigorous, daring, tender, and intimate depth and breadth.

Included in this new edition are ten poets not featured in the original volume: Mary Oliver, Sharon Olds, Michael Palmer, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Kay Ryan, Yusef Komunyakaa, Heather McHugh, Mark Doty, Henri Cole, and Carl Phillips.
