The second volume in the groundbreaking anthology. Containing brief biographies, complete listings of each author's books of poetry with publication information and a fairly large sampling of the poetry in translation, this series shows what Messerli sees as a century of poetry of no safely contained modes of expression, but rather as 'an energetic and often uncontrollable beast of language upon whose back the reader is taken to worlds that exist only in thinking itself.' Includes Anna Akhmatova, Oswald de Andrade, Ece Ayhan, Gottfried Benn, Lucian Blaga, Jorge Carrera Andrade, Blaise Cendrars, Forugh Farrokhzad, Maruyama Kaoru, Pablo Neruda, Janose Polinszki, Miltos Sahtouis, and more.
