Southern Poetry Anthology VI PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Southern Poetry Anthology VI free pdf The state of Tennessee is widely recognized as a home of great music, and its geographic regions are as distinct as Memphis blues, Nashville country, and Bristol old-time sounds. Tennessee's literary heritage offers equal variety and quality, as home to the Fugitive Agrarian Poets, as well as a signature voice from the Black Arts Movement. Few states present such a multicultural panorama as does the Volunteer State.
The poems in "The Southern Poetry Anthology, Volume VI: Tennessee" engage the storied histories, diverse cultures, and vibrant rural and urban landscapes of the region. Among the more than 120 poets represented are Pulitzer and Bollingen Prize-winner Charles Wright, Brittingham Award-winner Lynn Powell, and Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize-winners Rick Hilles and Arthur Smith.
The book includes an introduction from renowned poet Jeff Daniel Marion, who in 1978 received the first literary fellowship from the Tennessee Arts Commission. Too, the book celebrates relatively young and gifted voices. This important anthology will stand for many years as the definitive poetic document for the state of Tennessee.
Conceived by Series Editor William Wright in 2003, "The Southern Poetry Anthology" is a multivolume project celebrating established and emerging poets of the American South. Inspired by single-volume anthologies such as Leon Stokesbury's "The Made Thing," Gil Allen's "A Ninety-Six Sampler," and Guy Owen and Mary C. Williams' "Contemporary Southern Poetry: an Anthology," "The Southern Poetry Anthology" aspires to provide readers with a documentary-like survey of the best poetry being written in the American South at the present moment.
Published exclusively by Texas Review Press, the series provides the most comphrehensive representation of Southern poets currently available and is currently being used in university classrooms across the South.
