TRIAL BALANCES: An Anthology of New Poetry

Email this review


An unusual approach to new comers in the field of poetry, this is a collection of the best work of thirty poets, under twenty five years of age. It is a critical anthology, as the work of each young poet is appraised by an established fellow poet or critic. The result is more constructive than the average anthology, with its biographical notes only, and makes this book a collection that aspiring writers will want and that should be recommended to literature study groups, clubs, and high school and college classes. The names of the contributors are scarcely familiar, as yet, but the promise of their work makes one feel that among them are the poets of the next decade.
