Hoover edited the first edition of "Postmodern American Poetry" in the mid-1990s. While each edition begins with work written as early as 1950, the second will also include poems composed from 1994 to the present. Both anthologies showcase work influenced by the social and political change that followed World War II, characterized by unorthodox and experimental approaches.
