Pithy and powerful, poetry is a popular art form at protests and rallies. From the civil rights and women’s liberation movements to Black Lives Matter, poetry is commanding enough to gather crowds in a city square and compact enough to demand attention on social media.

    The Modern American Poetry Site is a comprehensive learning environment and scholarly forum for the study of modern and contemporary American poetry. MAPS welcomes submissions of original essays and teaching materials related to MAPS poets and the Anthology of Modern American Poetry. In her book of essays, The Life of Poetry, Muriel Rukeyser embraces poetry as an essential agent of change. The book begins with an exploration of resistance, most notably in an essay on "The Fear of Poetry." In the Foreword, Jane Cooper writes: "Why is poetry feared? Because it demands full consciousness; it asks us to feel and it asks us to respond.

      The geographical range is wide as is the range of styles and themes supporting Resistance. Unusually, the book includes a substantial number of visionary poems, far beyond the limitations of agitprop. In many ways it represents a gathering of the post World War II Edition: 1st.
