In The Vintage Book of African American Poetry, editors Michael S. Harper and Anthony Walton present the definitive collection of black verse in the United States--200 years of vision, struggle, power, beauty, and triumph from 52 outstanding poets. From the neoclassical stylings of slave-born Phillis Wheatley to the wistful lyricism of Paul Lawrence Dunbar . . . the rigorous wisdom of Gwendolyn Brooks...the chiseled modernism of Robert Hayden...the extraordinary prosody of Sterling A. Brown...the breathtaking, expansive narratives of Rita Dove...the plaintive rhapsodies of an imprisoned Elderidge Knight . . . The postmodern artistry of Yusef Komunyaka. Here, too, is a landmark exploration of lesser-known artists whose efforts birthed the Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts movements--and changed forever our national literature and the course of America itself. Meticulously researched, thoughtfully structured, The Vintage Book of African-American Poetry is a collection of inestimable value to students, educators, and all those interested in the ever-evolving tradition that is American poetry.

*WINNER OF THE FORWARD PRIZE FOR BEST COLLECTION 2018* *A Finalist for the National Book Award for Poetry 2017* ‘[Smith’s] poems are enriched to the point of volatility, but they pay out, often, in sudden joy’ The New Yorker Award-winning poet Danez Smith is a ground-breaking force, celebrated for deft lyrics, urgent subjects, and performative power. Don’t Call Us Dead opens with a heartrending sequence that imagines an afterlife for black men shot by police, a place where suspicion, violence, and grief are forgotten and replaced with the safety, love and longevity they deserved here on earth. Smith turns then to desire, mortality – the dangers experienced in skin and body and blood – and an HIV-positive diagnosis. ‘Some of us are killed / in pieces,’ Smith writes, ‘some of us all at once.’ Don’t Call Us Dead is an astonishing and ambitious collection, one that confronts, praises, and rebukes an America where every day is too often a funeral and not often enough a miracle.

2004 marks the tenth year of the Mildura Writers' Festival, an arts festival noted for its camaraderie, conviviality and hospitality. Writers, poets and cooks are all in attendance, and attend one another's sessions; they eat - or rather feast - together from breakfast to dinner and beyond; and they join in the festivities and conversations that make these days one long and lively celebration. "Vintage" captures between its covers a selection from festivals past, and the contributors will be well known to Australians. The works cross a wide range of genres: poems, stories, essays, memoirs, interviews, song lyrics and recipes. For the last several years, the festival has invited a guest chef to present a special dinner, and the recipes here are for some of the dishes they prepared at Mildura. The book is arranged into sections, each like a course or perhaps a meal in itself, in which the various flavours that compose the festival blend in their own distinct way. It is a book to take pleasure in, for its entertainment and provocation; its levity and intensity; its glittering surfaces and its deep thoughtfulness.
