The American Aesthetic

The American Aesthetic is searching for poetry that will once again engage the general public’s interest; poetry that will seem more meaningful and relevant to their everyday lives—much as a good song, a good play, a good movie, a good book, or a good lecture or sermon might seem meaningful and relevant to their lives. Therefore, we have attempted to create a forum, platform, nexus to bring a certain caliber of poets together in one place.

The Bitter Oleander Press

Our books represent the best of contemporary poetry published today in English and in translation. Even though our concentration is on contemporary poets in translation, we find some who have submitted work to our biannual journal for a lengthy period of time, to be the subject of a feature and then, if possible, a book of their work is considered for publication. We build on long-term relationships where the poetry meets our particular needs.
