American Poetry The Next Generation

My favorite Poetry anthology of all time is American Poetry: The Next Generation (Carnegie Mellon Poetry Series) edited by Gerald Costanzo and Jim Daniels

http://www.amazon.com/American-Poetry-Generation-Carnegie-Mellon/dp/0887483437/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1428835855&sr=8-2&keywords=American+Poetry%3A+The+Next+Generation


The Collected Poems of Ai

In general, I prefer digesting poems in shorter collections, you cannot beat the experience of delving into The Collected Poems of Ai

http://www.amazon.com/Collected-Poems-Ai/dp/0393074900/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428835644&sr=8-1&keywords=The+Collected+Poems+of+Ai

satan says

The first volume of contemporary Poetry I read was Satan Says by Sharon Olds

http://www.amazon.com/Satan-Says-Pitt-Poetry-Sharon/dp/0822953145/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428835760&sr=8-1&keywords=Satan+Says+by+Sharon+Olds

The Prose Poem

 I haven’t read The Prose Poem: An International Anthology edited by Michael Benedikt. I can’t even find it. So I recommend finding it, reading it, and then giving it to me.

http://www.amazon.com/Prose-Poem-International-Anthology/dp/044037099X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1428835520&sr=8-1&keywords=Michael+Benedikt++%2B+The+Prose+Poem%3A+An+
