520    "This landmark anthology brings together for the first 
       time more than three hundred poems by over seventy African
       American poets, including Gwendolyn Brooks, Robert Hayden,
       Ai, Toi Derricotte, Rita Dove, Elizabeth Alexander, 
       Natasha Tretheway, Major Jackson, and Kevin Young. Angles 
       of Ascent looks to the immediate past of contemporary 
       African American poetry, including the influence of 
       Modernism in the 1950's and the Black Arts Movement of the
       1960's, before turning toward the current thriving 
       literary sceneand beyond. General readers and specialists 
       alike will treasure this collection for its diverse 
       readings of humanity by modern and contemporary African 
       American poets as well as its comprehensive introductions 
       and commentary."--|cProvided by publisher.
