For a Living: The Poetry of Work


In this companion volume to their anthology Working Classics , Nicholas Coles and Peter Oresick present poems written in the 1980s and 1990s that address the nature and culture of nonindustrial work---white collar, domestic, clerical, technical, managerial, or professional. They cross lines of status, class, and gender and range from mopping floors to television news reporting, Wall Street brokerage, and raising children.
