Poems for the Millennium by Jerome Rothenberg

Book Description

As we come to the end of the century, the entire vista of modern poetry has dramatically changed. "Poems for the Millennium" captures the essence of that change, and unlike any anthology available today, it reveals the revolutionary concepts at the very heart of twentieth-century poetry. International in its coverage, these volumes depart from the established poetic modes that grew out of the nineteenth century and instead bring together the movements that radically altered the ways that art and language express the human condition. The first volume offers three 'galleries' of individual poets - figures such as Mallarme, Stein, Rilke, Tzara, Mayakovsky, Pound, H.D., Vallejo, Artaud, Cesaire, and Tsvetayeva. Included, too, are sections dedicated to some of the most significant pre-World War II movements in poetry and the other arts: Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, Objectivism, and Negritude. The second volume will extend the gathering to the present, forming a synthesizing, global anthology that surpasses other collections in its international scope and experimental range. Poet-editors Jerome Rothenberg and Pierre Joris provide informative and irreverent commentaries throughout. They challenge old truths and propose alternative directions, in the tradition of the revolutionary manifestos that have marked the art and poetry of the twentieth century. The result is both an essential source book for experiencing the full range of this century's poetic possibilities and a powerful statement on the future of poetry in the millennium ahead.

Symposium of the Whole by Jerome Rothenberg Symposium of the Whole, Paperback (November 2016)

In three ethnographic sections, this book demonstrates how various poetries are structured and composed, how they reflect meaning and worldview, and how they are performed in cultures where all art may be thought of as art-in-motion.

Poems for the Millennium by Jerome Rothenberg Poems for the Millennium, Paperback (January 2009)

Gathers selections from the poetry and manifestos of canonical poets, as well as the work of lesser-known but equally radical poets. Defining romanticism as experimental and visionary, this title features prose poetry, verbal-visual experiments, and sound poetry. It also explores romanticism outside the European orbit.
