Overview

The poems in this spicy collection are boldly playful and seriously sensual treatments of everything you wanted to know about sex but never thought to find in a poem. Pleased to See Me is a sassy and unashamedly saucy celebration of fleshly pleasures by our finest contemporary poets. As editor Neil Astley points out, "These are very sexy poems not just because they are about sex, but because their luscious language is handled with wit and sureness of touch. This is the first book to show how the way poets write about sex has changed dramatically. As in so much else, the boundaries have shifted. Sex in modern poetry is treated freely and frankly, with passion, tenderness, and a great sense of fun. Expect surprises and reversals as well as creepiness and unease, coupled with in-your-face exuberance." These are spicy X-rated valentines for reading in bed. They cover and uncover everything we like doing with our bodies, both women and men. Is your favorite sexy poem here? Among the poets included are Sharon Olds, Anne Sexton, Charles Simic, Thom Gunn, Billy Collins, Stephen Dobyns, Tess Gallagher, Maxine Chernoff, and Galway Kinnell.
