The Party Train: A Collection of North American Prose Poetry


The prose poem, as revealed in this anthology, is essentially a short prose piece that takes on the character of poetry, either by means of language, subject matter, mood, or some other literary feature. A broader tradition in the form exists in America than is generally acknowledged by either its critics or its supporters. This anthology presents an overview of the variety and excellence of work currently being done in the field, while at the same time giving an indication of the broad historical base that has, until now, remained largely uncollected.
