AMERICAN WRITERS, Supplement XIX By Jay Parini Number Of Pages: 592 Publication Date: 1996-09-23 ISBN-10: 0684315548 ISBN-13: 9780684315546
The writers studied in this supplement are mostly contemporary, although a few have roots in the early twentieth century. David Budbill, W. S. Di Piero, Mark Halliday, Ted Kooser, Molly Peacock, and Bruce Weigl are mainly poets by trade, though most of them have also worked in other areas. While each of the writers discussed in this supplement has already found an audience—a large one in the case of Robert B. Parker—few of them have yet to receive the kind of sustained attention they deserve, although each has been reviewed at length in periodicals.
