Thirty-seven thematically organized chapters discuss death and dying in American poetry, Modernism, early and late experimentalisms, poetry addressing cinema and popular music, African American, Asian American, Latinx, and Indigenous poetries. This Companionalso covers contemporary topics such as Digital Modernism, Queer and Trans poetics, modern Feminist poetry, and poetry and politics in the 21st century, and more.

A Companion to American Poetry is an essential resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, academic researchers and scholars, and for readers looking to explore current trends in American poetry.
