From the Publisher"A 'best' anthology that really lives up to its title."
-- Chicago Tribune
Readers of The Best American Poetry 2013 will encounter such known stars as Kim Addonizio, Tony Hoagland, James Tate, and Mary Ruefle side by side with the rising voices of Nin Andrews, Bruce Bond, Anna Maria Hong, Timothy Donnelly, and Jericho Brown. This edition opens with David Lehman’s incisive “state of the art” essay and Denise Duhamel’s engagingly candid discussion of the seventy-five poems that made her final cut.

“The Best American Poetry 2013” by one of my favorite modern poets, David Lehman. It is the third edition I have in the series
and is as good, or even better, than the previous two. This year’s guest editor is Denise Duhmel and she has chosen a wide variety
of selections. Her choices include established and well known poets to new and exciting up and comers. There is something in
the collection for everyone and it is truly representative of the best writing today. I enjoy having this edition on my end table where
each evening I can get some hot tea and read one or two poems and allow them to open a world beyond my couch. As always,
this collection will be appreciated for years to come.
