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


satan says

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.
