Summary
American Poetry, 1922 by Edna St. Vincent Millay and Robert Frost - The Original Classic EditionFinally available, a high quality book of the original classic edition.This is a new and freshly published edition of this culturally important work, which is now, at last, again available to you.Enjoy this classic work today. These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside:It was obviously not the organ of a school, yet it did not seem to have been compiled to exploit any particular phase of American life; neither Nature, Love, Patriotism, Propaganda, nor Philosophy could be acclaimed as its reason for being, and it was certainly not intended, as has been so frequent of late, to bring a cheerful absence of mind to the world-weary during an unoccupied ten minutes....The dissimilarities of temperament, range and choice of subjects are manifest, but the outstanding difference is this: Georgian Poetry has an editor, and the poems it contains may be taken as that editors reaction to the poetry of the day. ... The poets who appear here have come together by mutual accord and, although they may invite others to join them in subsequent volumes as circumstance dictates, each one stands (as all newcomers also must stand) as the exponent of fresh and strikingly diverse qualities in our native poetry....They are new not only in the sense [Pg vi] that (with two exceptions) they cannot be found in book form, but most of them have never previously been published....(Among pigeon corners of the Congressional Library—they file documents quietly, casually, all in a days work—this human document, the buck private nobody knows the name of—they file away in granite and steel—with music and roses, salutes, proclamations of the honorable orators.)
