Poetry. LGBT Studies. Edited by Timothy Liu, himself an accomplished poet (VOX ANGELICA, SAY GOODNIGHT), the formidable anthology WORD OF MOUTH covers a vast range of work by twentieth-century gay American poets. Arranged in order of the poets' birthdates, so that the book shades gradually from older luminaries of the poetry scene to bright newcomers, the work here forms a sparkling composite picture of gay poetic sensibility in the U.S. Including Ashbery, Auden, Brainard, Bronk, Duncan, Denby, Doty, Elmslie, Ginsberg, Gunn, Killian, Koestenbaum, Lansing, Mead, Merrill, O'Hara, Phillips, Schuyler, Shurin, Spicer, Wieners, and Williams.
