Featured Anthology:



Joyful Noise

A selection of poems and songs that trace America's diverse spiritual traditions. This comprehensive survey includes Native American songs, traditional Protestant hymns, nineteenth-century transcendental verse, and selections from major modern and contemporary authors, such as T.S. Eliot, Wallace Stevens, William Carlos Williams, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Langston Hughes, Allen Ginsberg, Agha Shahid Ali, Mark Doty, Jane Hirshfield, and Denise Duhamel.

All poetry is spiritual," Robert Strong points out in his introduction. "As I worked on this anthology, I heard this sentiment again and again, from poets and readers alike. The spiritual, after all, is what our existence soaks in; it is both everywhere and ineffable, always right here and just out of reach. We see it in blades of grass, sense it in love and in the cries of newborns, in the eyes of the dying, in volcanoes and choirs..."

Also by Robert Strong

Puritan Spectacle is a newly-imagined bible for our rapidly-diminishing idea of America. It is, by turns, startling and profound, playful and terrifying, utterly original yet, seemingly, simply overheard. --Nick Flynn, author of Some Ether and Another Bullshit Night in Suck City.

Seriously funny and deadly serious. --Eleni Sikelianos, author of The California Poem.

Puritan Spectacle risks its protest in unapologetically singing our most sanctified, most deadly, and most repressed values-- that all of it was made for us and is owed to us and so must be consumed by us. --Richard Greenfield, author of A Carnage in the Lovetrees.
