The Little Book of Modern Verse
A Selection from the Work of Contemporaneous American Poets
Edited by Jessie B. Rittenhouse
This informal anthology represents the early twentieth-century work of 70 “new poets” by juxtaposing some 158 selections by “mood or theme,” resulting in a uniquely readable, full poetic journey.
