  • Description
  • Contributors
Georgia Voices Volume 3, Poetry, is the final anthology in a distinctive multivolume set of works by Georgia's most gifted writers. Offering selections from thirty-nine poets, Georgia Voices Volume 3 presents a variety of literary and cultural traditions. While the poems reflect the places and times of their origins, they also reveal the impact of today's global society in their diverse and contrasting themes. With myriad styles and voices, this work is characteristic of the South's blend of tradition and innovation, elegance and angst. As eclectic as it is representative of Georgia's character and heritage, the volume contains works mainly from the twentieth century. In this collection we encounter some of America's finest poets—Sidney Lanier, Conrad Aiken, James Dickey, Alice Walker, Judson Mitcham, Judith Ortiz Cofer, Rosemary Daniell, Wyatt Prunty, Charlie Smith, Bettie Sellers, Coleman Barks, Stephen Corey, Kathryn Stripling Byer, and many others
