Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Snott | 1/30/2014

    " My favorite poetry collection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amelia | 1/20/2014

    " The book is very thick, so one of my favorite things to do is just randomly flip to a page and read the poem I land on. There's a good diversity of poets and poetic styles, and I almost always enjoy what I read in this volume. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis | 1/1/2014

    " Marvelous anthology of the poetry of some of America's most renegade poets... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drew | 12/18/2013

    " It's a compendium of all the dirty and gritty poetry that your English teacher doesn't want you to read. In a good way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Talia | 11/18/2013

    " A mixture of beats, meats, slammers, and so-called renegades...which supposedly includes everyone from Janis Joplin and Tupak Shukur to William Carlos Williams and Ferlinghetti. The editors of this massive anthology said they were trying to bring light to the more obsure, but it is apparent to see why many of these are obscure. The essays, letters, photos, however, are interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 11/17/2013

    " Great example of the range of poetry that kids are missing out on , dirty, gritty and bleeding in the streets "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephany Joy | 11/7/2013

    " This book introduced me to James Dean's "Ode to a Tijuana Toilet," and I will be forever grateful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna | 10/25/2013

    " ok, so I didn't read the entire book and now I can't find it. I am going to look at the library. I read some of these poems a couple years ago and continue to think of them on a regular basis. Some phrases have become part of my internal dialogue and still make me laugh. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jonathan Williamson | 10/18/2013

    " This book was given to me as a gift. To be honest, I can not recall who gave it to me, but fuck them. This is some bullshit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seven | 9/23/2013

    " you're not a poet if it's not on your shelf!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerman | 8/23/2013

    " I don't own this book. But I'm a poet, so I should. And you should too, because it's totally rad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ophelia | 8/11/2013

    " I can not put into words how this book has affected my life. The book is lined and scribbled with favorite stanzas. Everyone should read this collection. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivisection | 7/24/2013

    " A little heavy on the beat poets, of whom I am not terribly fond, but an otherwise stellar collection of poetry from the gritty underbelly of America. T.S. Eliot it ain't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate B | 6/30/2013

    " The essential book for poetry addicts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Misti Rainwater-Lites | 6/29/2013

    " I love David Lerner. He is the star of this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audrey | 6/20/2013

    " This book was given to me by Sam Orgavani for high school graduation. I read it while I was working at the BW library. It did me a world of good my freshman year. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 brook | 9/27/2012

    " this is mammoth, and i'm pretty picky, so a lot of this didn't click with me. but what did stand out was some really really good stuff. give it a go if you're patient and have an open mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 cat | 7/5/2012

    " the poems by che guevara and daniel berrigan are worth the price alone "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Justin | 6/5/2012

    " My introduction to what poetry could be used for. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 4/24/2012

    " This is the greatest book of non pc poetry ever, I read it often and have shared many memorable poems. The content however can be very off-color and is adult in nature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tosh | 3/19/2012

    " Now this is a fun little (well actually big) anthology of poetry by bad asses of all sorts. You are pissed. Angry even. This is the book that will add the salt to the open wound. Poor it on baby because you are going to eat this book like it's the last meal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 3/9/2012

    " I personally really liked Sara Holbrook's Chicks Up Front, Hettie Jones' Words, and Julia Vinograd's In the Bookstore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/2/2012

    " The best collection of Modern Poetry in one place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawna | 6/29/2011

    " One of my two favorite poetry anthologies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The Boogerhead | 4/22/2011

    " Bombastic and overwhelming, missing a few key figures because their families wouldn't grant the publishing rights (Bukowski), but contains others that might not have been included, like Tupac Shakur & Tom Waits. A good intro. "
