Beneath a Single Moon is an extraordinary collection of the work of forty-five contemporary American poets—with over 250 poems and thirty essays on the influence of spiritual practice on the practice of poetry. Included are works by John Cage, Diane di Prima, Allen Ginsberg, Jane Hirshfield, Andrew Schelling, Gary Snyder, Anne Waldman, and others.
"This intelligent anthology provides compelling evidence of a continuing preoccupation in American thought, from Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman to the poets here represented. It is the human search for locating home, transcendent yet literal, always here even if nowhere. The complexly common voices of these writers are an insistent call to our own need, to let go of our 'lives' and so live them."—Robert Creeley
