Another South is an anthology of poetry from modern southern writers who're operating in types which are radical, cutting edge, and visionary. hugely experimental and tough in nature, the poetry during this quantity, with its syntactical disjunctions, formal revolutions, and typographic playfulness, represents the course of a brand new breed of southern writing that's immediately common in its allure and neighborhood in its flavor.

Focusing on poets at present dwelling within the South, the anthology comprises either rising and proven voices within the nationwide and overseas literary international. From the invocations of Andy Young's "Vodou Headwashing rite" to the blues-informed poems of Lorenzo Thomas and Honorée Jeffers, from the various voicings of )ohn Lowther and Kalamu ya Salaam to the visible, multi-genre paintings of Jake Berry, David Thomas Roberts, and Bob Grumman, the poetry in Another South is wealthy in kind and enthusiastic in its explorations of recent how you can embrace position and time. those writers have made the South lush with a poetic avant-garde all its personal, not just redefining southern id and voice but additionally delivering new versions of what's attainable universally throughout the medium of poetry.
