60 Years of American Poetry

Published by Harry N Abrams Inc

In 1984, Abrams proudly published Fifty Years of American Poetry to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Academy of American Poets, with poems from each of the Academy’s Chancellors, Fellows, and prizewinners, and a historical preface by the late poet and Academy Chancellor Robert Penn Warren. Since then, the Academy has continued to further the art f poetry; new prizes, new programs, and the emergence of a new generation of American poets have characterized the past decade. This Expanded Edition increases the book’s contents to more than 200 poems, with a new preface by Academy Chancellor Emeritus Richard Wilbur.
