Salt

A Collection of Poetry on the Oregon Coast

Edited by Amanda Deutch

Salt’s 32 poets’ contributions reflect the special nature of Oregon’s beaches and the range of influence the state’s coastal landscape has exerted on American poetry over many decades.From the Beat Generation/Zen Buddhist heroes Philip Whalen and Gary Snyder, to the renowned father and son literary tandem of William and Kim Stafford, to commercial fishermen, activists, long-time coastal residents, and contemporary experimental poets, Salt offers readers a variety of established and new poetic voices in its 80 pages.
