AMERICA A PROPHECY: A New Reading of American Poetry from Pre-Columbian Times to the Present

A rich, exciting anthology which recognizes the European tradition as only one element in the American cultural experience; hence we have here everyone from William Cullen Bryant to Chogyam Trungpa and Jaime de Angulo, everything from traditional prosody to native American chants, Afro-American blues, and selections from writings not usually called poetry, e.g., James Agee's Let Us Now Praise Famous Men.
