Abstract/Description: "It is with one of the publishing awards available to young poets that this study is concerned, namely, the Yale Series of Younger Poets, which has been offered since 1919 by the Yale University Press. Because this award was initiated to furnish a medium of publication for a first volume by a young poet as a stimulus to further writing, this writer was interested in determining whether this award proved to be an incentive to further writing by the individuals of the group. This study, therefore, is an attempt to determine if the first forty poets represented in the Series continued writing after their first publication, and if so, in what media, and if further literary recognition was awarded to any of the group"--Introduction.
