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

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

The first volume of contemporary Poetry I read was 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.
