Another South is an anthology of poetry from modern southern writers who're operating in types which are radical, leading edge, and visionary. hugely experimental and demanding in nature, the poetry during this quantity, with its syntactical disjunctions, formal revolutions, and typographic playfulness, represents the path of a brand new breed of southern writing that's without delay common in its charm and nearby in its flavor.

Focusing on poets at present living within the South, the anthology contains either rising and demonstrated voices within the nationwide and foreign literary global. From the invocations of Andy Young's "Vodou Headwashing rite" to the blues-informed poems of Lorenzo Thomas and Honorée Jeffers, from the various voicings of )ohn Lowther and Kalamu ya Salaam to the visible, multi-genre paintings of Jake Berry, David Thomas Roberts, and Bob Grumman, the poetry in Another South is wealthy in style and enthusiastic in its explorations of recent how you can include position and time. those writers have made the South lush with a poetic avant-garde all its personal, not just redefining southern id and voice but in addition supplying new versions of what's attainable universally in the course of the medium of poetry.

Hank Lazer's introductory essay approximately "Kudzu textuality" contextualizes the paintings by means of those modern innovators. just like the uncontrollable runaway vine that entwines the southern panorama, their poems are hyperfertile, stretching their roots and shoots relentlessly, immediately harmful and regenerative. In creating a radical departure from nostalgic southern literary voices, those poems of polyvocal abundance are nearer in spirit to "speaking in tongues" or apocalyptic southern folks art—primitive, brilliant, and mystic.
