Another South is an anthology of poetry from modern southern writers who're operating in types which are radical, cutting edge, and visionary. hugely experimental and hard in nature, the poetry during this quantity, with its syntactical disjunctions, formal revolutions, and typographic playfulness, represents the path of a brand new breed of southern writing that's straight away common in its charm and local in its flavor.
 
Focusing on poets presently dwelling within the South, the anthology contains either rising and proven voices within the nationwide and foreign literary international. From the invocations of Andy Young's "Vodou Headwashing rite" to the blues-informed poems of Lorenzo Thomas and Honorée Jeffers, from the various voicings of )ohn Lowther and Kalamu ya Salaam to the visible, multi-genre paintings of Jake Berry, David Thomas Roberts, and Bob Grumman, the poetry in Another South is wealthy in style and enthusiastic in its explorations of latest how one can include position and time. those writers have made the South lush with a poetic avant-garde all its personal, not just redefining southern id and voice but additionally providing new versions of what's attainable universally throughout the medium of poetry.

In creating a radical departure from nostalgic southern literary voices, those poems of polyvocal abundance are nearer in spirit to "speaking in tongues" or apocalyptic southern folks art—primitive, awesome, and mystic.
