   Featured this week in the Poetry Resource Books section of the PSH Bookstore:


   This A-Z compendium of 500-plus signed entries presents an eclectic approach
   to the study of twentieth-century American poetry, reflecting the wide
   of poetic styles, schools, and movements of the century. Kimmelman, a
   professor of English at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and himself a
   poet, draws upon the expertise of 244 academic contributors from all parts of
   the country and abroad. Analysis by contributors from academic
institutions in
   Australia, Canada, Germany, Guatemala, Israel, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan,
   and the U.K. lends unique cross-cultural perspectives. Entries range in
   from 500 to 2,000 words, and each has a bibliography. In addition to
   poets, coverage encompasses important poems and collections as well as
   topics such as Caribbean poetic influences, Deep image poetry, Fugitive/
   Agrarian school, and Poetry journals. Of note is the book's expert inclusion
   of African American poets and poetry Entries offer extensive, authoritative
   interpretations of well-known poets Maya Angelou, Rita Dove, and Langston
   Hughes, to name three, and entries for lesser-known writers like the late
   modernist African American poet Melvin Tolson.

   A work that attempts to offer an encyclopedic treatment of such a broad topic
   in one volume will no doubt contain omissions, but this does not detract from
   the overall quality, relevance, and caliber of the book. A valuable companion
   to standard reference sources like Gale's Contemporary Poets series or
   Poetry for Students series, it is recommended for all public libraries and
   undergraduate collections and is sure to be a handy reference guide during
   National Poetry Month and Black History Month. Diana Kirby
