AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PROSE POEM clears a new path for students, instructors, and general readers interested in exploring the “ramshackle and unexpected… thoroughfare” [Campbell McGrath] of a hard-to-define genre. Combining classic prose poets, young upstarts, and under-appreciated practitioners with an innovative structure (organized by compositional strategy), a useful introduction, and instructive headnotes, this anthology is a useful tool for the classroom but also provides what every poetry reader wants–a ton of great poems.
