Item description for No Boundaries: Prose Poems by 24 American Poets by Ray Gonzalez...

"As more poets write prose poems, one of the most common reasons they give for turning to them is that their fluent composition offers a freedom of expression' lined poetry often restricts. To many, this sounds like a contradiction stemming from the eternal belief that any kind of good poetry has no boundaries. Yet those that write prose poems insist the act of placing their poems into sentences and paragraphs gives them a fresh approach to content and form."-From the introduction by Ray Gonzalez

An innovative and refreshing concept in poetry anthologies, No Boundaries is the first collection of contemporary prose poetry to present substantial selections from the works of well-known luminaries beside the prose of the latest firebrands. By offering 10 poems by each poet, this collection allows the reader to explore the work of each contributor in depth. Robert Bly, Russell Edson, Campbell McGrath and other established poets light the torches held by newcomers Mary Koncel, Gary Young, Linda Dyer and others. Editor Gonzalez chose to showcase these distinctive writers whose work embodies the diversity of styles and techniques representing the art of the prose poem today.

Contributors: Mary Koncel, Robert Bly, John Bradley, Killarney Clary, Jon Davis, Linda Dyer, Russell Edson, Amy Gerstler, Ray Gonzalez, Maurice Kilwein Guevara, Juan Felipe Herrera, Louis Jenkins, Peter Johnson, George Kalamaras, Christine Boyka Kluge, Nin Andrews, Morton Marcus, Harryette Mullen, Naomi Shahib Nye, Liz Waldner, Gary Young, Karen Volkman, Campbell McGrath, Charles Simic

Ray Gonzalez has been poetry editor of The Bloomsbury Review for 22 years, and has won numerous awards for his prolific literary output. In 2002, he was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for his poetry collection, The Hawk Temple at Tierre Grande. He has won many awards for his anthologies and, to date, has compiled a dozen literature collections. He teaches at the University of Minnesota.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Boundaries: Prose Poems by 24 American Poets?

Great foundation for people getting into Prose Poetry  Sep 7, 2008
A fine collection, this offers some examples of the genre. Some call it "poetry's cop-out," it allows the clever writer an easily understandable perhaps first attempt at image rich free verse. You'll surprise yourself if you, after reading some of these great poems and poets, don't be suprised if you pick up your pen/pencil/laptop, dabble with a few prose poems and see that, "Hey, some of this is really pretty good."
