In Our Own Words: Generation X Poetry Marlow Weaver (Editor) 160 pages Mw Enterprises; ISBN: 0965413624
This brilliant volume which contains 214 poems from 145 poets from around the world is well worth the read. Many of the poets included in the work have been previously published by A Writer's Choice Literary Journal. Marlow dug through over 4500 submissions to find the selections which give rise to the voice of the so-called X-generation. His choices were excellent, and prove to show what we all too often forget-people are not labels or stereotypes. The X Generation is comprised of varied and individual mindsets, attitudes, emotions.
This anthology sings loud with a varied, vibrant, voice. I'd have preferred page numbers in the book but that is a small complaint. I think this work sets the tone for the future of poetry into the next millennium. And it serves well the point that Poetry Is Not Dead- but is a live, breathing, growing, and important part of world culture.
Congratulations to all the poets included, and a big hand of applause for Mr. Weaver.

As one of the poets in this anthology I admit I am not totally objective. I found more than half of the poems here to be interresting and worth reading. Some 'poets' here are too young (in their teens) to really have a voice, the older ones like me (b. 1959) seem to be more 'poets', whatever that means. Worth reading if you were born between 1960 and 1980, just to know why you are called an Xer. Mostly this is straight poetry and not very complicated, for all those who think they can't understand poetry, this will be a surprise. Vol. 2 and 3 have been published already.

The astounding thing about this anthology is the range of styles and thought processes that are involved. Certainly, there's a huge range in the degree of sophistication --some of the authors are clearly poetry vets, while others are experimenting with basic rhyme-- but the book is fascinating because of the range of thoughts featured from page to page. Not only do political and socialogical ideologies vary widely from author to author, but the various contributors clearly have fundamentally different ways of seeing the most commonplace things.
The publisher has repeatedly stated that he wanted to attack the stereotypes surrounding Generation X. He has done so effectively, by showing us an age group too broad in its scope and opinions to be catagorized. The book is truly suspenseful; when one is reading a page, one has no clue what one will see on the next.

After reading this book I ached for more. Truly an artistic representation of a generation. Though I am not part of this generation, after reading the poetry contained within I find the "X" is representational of Excellence. This book should be read by all.

If you can look beyond the presentation (I like more of a traditional poetry look) then I think you will find an anthology worthy of a look or two. I think it is unique in that it really gives a voice to a labeled "generation".
