This is THE anthology covering all of Eshleman's long poetic career, spanning from his first published works in 1960 through to 2015. This book is concerned only with his poetry and would be considered a comprehensive "selected" works. Will be published in time for the author's 80th birthday.

As a poet, translator, and editor, Clayton Eshleman has been a singularly seminal and synergetic force in American poetry for fifty years. His magazines Caterpillar and Sulfur served as experimental open sites, soundboards and repositories for the poetry and arts from the 1960s to the turn of the millennium. His translations—of César Vallejo, Aimé Césaire, Antonin Artaud, and other poets of extreme consciousness—are celebrated as inspired and exacting models of the craft. The fifteen full-length volumes of his own poetry—by turns personal, political, and, at their furthest reach, primordial—reflect a life of vision, sensitivity, and, at times, wrath, lived in ceaseless exploration and commitment to the whole art.

A two-time winner of the Landon Translation Prize from the Academy of American Poets, Clayton Eshleman's work has also been awarded a National Book Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and multiple grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, among many other honors. Widely anthologized, his work has appeared in over 400 magazines and newspapers and translated in eight languages. He has given readings and lectured to audiences and at universities around the world. Recent scholarship on Eshleman has continued, including a recent book on him with many renowned authors and poets contributing essays.
