Summary
"This landmark anthology brings together for the first time more than three hundred poems by over seventy African American poets, including Gwendolyn Brooks, Robert Hayden, Ai, Toi Derricotte, Rita Dove, Elizabeth Alexander, Natasha Tretheway, Major Jackson, and Kevin Young. Angles of Ascent looks to the immediate past of contemporary African American poetry, including the influence of Modernism in the 1950's and the Black Arts Movement of the 1960's, before turning toward the current thriving literary sceneand beyond. General readers and specialists alike will treasure this collection for its diverse readings of humanity by modern and contemporary African American poets as well as its comprehensive introductions and commentary."--
