Brief biographies introduce each poet and her work.

Between the lines :
ISBN: 1566636566. OCLC Number: 62782139

Ivan R. Dee, Publisher,. .

"Virtually all of the nearly five hundred letters in Between the Lines have never been printed before. Mr. Parisi's introductions and commentaries set the stage for the lively drama of contemporary poetry in the making, and unfold the improbable tale of how perennially impoverished Poetry survived to make literary - and financial - history." "More than eighty illustrations - candid author photographs, drawings, and newspaper clippings - enliven this unusually rich cultural history."--Jacket.
