The BreakBeat Poets: New American Poetry in the Age of Hip-Hop


ISBN: 978-1608463954

Just as blues influenced the Harlem Renaissance and jazz influenced the Black Arts Movement, hip-hop’s musical and cultural force has shaped the aesthetics of and given rise to a new generation of American poets. Edited by poets Kevin Coval, Nate Marshall, and Quraysh Ali Lansana, The Breakbeat Poets: New American Poetry in the Age of Hip-Hop is the first anthology of poetry from the hip-hop generation. The Breakbeat Poets are multigenerational and multiracial, employing traditional and wild style poetics to narrate a new landscape.
