       From the cannery rows of California to the sweatshops of New York, this         anthology of poems captures the drama of work and working-class life in         industrial America. It speaks of rolling mills, mine shafts, and foundries,         and of a people who dig coal, tap blast furnaces, sew shirts, clean fish,         and assemble cars. These subjects, though largely absent from literary         anthologies and textbooks, are increasingly evident in the work of contemporary         poets. Working Classics gathers the best and most representative         of these poems, American and Canadian, from 1945 to the present.       Included are poems by Antler, Robert Bly, Lorna Dee Cervantes, Jim Daniels,         Patricia Dobler, Stephen Dunn, Tess Gallagher, Edward Hirsch, David Ignatow,         June Jordan, Lawrence Joseph, Philip Levine, Chris Llewellyn, Joyce Carol         Oates, Anthony Petrosky, Michael Ryan, Gary Soto, Tom Wayman, James Wright,         and many others. The result is a diverse and evocative collection of 169         poems by 74 poets, nearly a third of them women.  … (mere)

Five stars because it's such a useful and original anthology, though I'd give it 3 stars for the cumulative dreary effect of 300 pages of so many "woe is me I'm a downtrodden worker" poems. Not that they're all like that. My personal taste keeps me always on the lookout for poems about taking pride in one's skills. Through this book I've discovered some wonderful poets I otherwise would never have heard of, including at least one who apparently never had a book published: Todd Jailer. Some of the name brand writers - Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Bly - are of less interest, sounding like upper class writers who are trying to write about "the condition of the working class." Others like Philip Levine have an authenticity that comes from inside experience. Best of all are the lesser known, the less polished gems - totally genuine - you'll find here. ( )
