Paperback, 406 pages

Dave Oliphant is widely considered the finest poetry critic ever produced by Texas. This volume brings together some forty years of essays, articles, and reviews on the topic of Texas poetry, covering its history as well as addressing individual poets and their books. Only one other book in the last two decades addressed the topic, and Generations of Texas Poets is larger, more comprehensive, and of superior literary quality. In 1971, Larry McMurtry famously decried the lack of good Texas poetry; Oliphant has spent a lifetime nurturing it and publishing it — and has become its foremost critic.
