Back in 1994, when the first edition of the Norton Anthology of Postmodern American Poetry was published, it presented an unprecedented gateway into the avant-garde. Nearly 20 years later, a second edition is born. Edited by poet and SFSU professor Paul Hoover, the new anthology is over a thousand pages (one-third larger), with more than 550 poems and 15 essays on poetics that show how far postmodern poetry has come since the ’90s. To celebrate the second edition, 17 of the West Coast’s finest postmodern poets will read from their work, a roster that represents a wide spectrum of the different kinds of experimental work being done: Will Alexander, Nill Berkson, Maxine Chernoff, Norma Cole, Gillian Conoley, Clark Coolidge, C.S. Giscombe, Andrew Joron, Joseph Lease, Michael McClure, K. Silem Mohammad, Laura Moriarty, Rusty Morrison, Michael Palmer, Stephen Ratcliffe, Elizabeth Robinson, and Aaron Shurin.
