The Art of 20th Century American Poetry: Modernism and After

Altieri's book situates modernist poetry in the context of early 20th century scientific and philosophical developments, to posit the emergence of a "new realism" in the works of Pound and Williams. It then traces the fate of this movement from Eliot to Ashbery by examining the way poets elaborate or revise the issue of impersonality and social identity.
