The most noteworthy thing about this book of poetry is the forward by Denise Levertov, which is primarily a statement about that moment in time politically and socially more than poetically. What she and the editor had noticed was an abundance of good poetry by younger poets. What’s sad is that none of the poets presented, except Marge Piercy, went on to be a prominent poet. Normally, I would say to discard this book; however, lingering patron interest bends me in the opposite direction. This is well-written poetry even if the poets are no longer recognized or anthologized. Keep it on the shelf until it goes ten years without attention.
