This anthology offers the most substantial collection of work by the Language Poets now available, along with 130 pages of theoretic statements by the poets represented. As such, it does for a new generation of American poets what Don Allen's New American Poetry did for an earlier generation. Poets represented include Bruce Andrews, Charles Bernstein, Clark Coolidge, Michael Davidson, Ray DiPalma, Robert Grenier, Lynn Hejinian, Fanny Howe, Susan Howe, Bernadette Mayer, Michael Palmer, Bob Perelman, Barrett Watten, and Hannah Weiner.

"This historic anthology brings into long needed focus the only serious and concerted movement in American literature of the past two decades. It will be indispensable". -- Peter Schjeldahl
