This is a stellar group of poets. Lots of variety in terms of styles--plenty of experimentation and difficulty balanced out with more narrative and formal work. A vivid snapshot of the contemporary poetry landscape.

This is a fantastic book for fans of all types of writing. The poetry is modern and thoughtful and will appeal to a traditional as well as new poetry reader.
