American Poetry Set

$250 $125

Readers of poetry seek different things – expressions of unorthodoxy and individuality, appreciations of the natural world, observations ranging from jarring to introspective. American poets have captured all of this and then some, continuously breaking free from earlier traditions to reinvent the country’s culture. This set includes 5 anthologies of American poetry from the 17th through the 20th centuries, collecting thousands of works from hundreds of poets. The books are published by Library of America and feature a custom jacket design that displays snippets of manuscripts and typescripts from these poets, a visual encapsulation of the varying styles and voices in the collection.
