Overview

Edited this year by beloved and inventive poet Denise Duhamel, the foremost annual anthology of contemporary American poetry returns.

Over the last twenty-five years, the Best American Poetry series has become an annual rite of autumn, eagerly awaited and hotly debated: “an essential purchase” (The Washington Post). This year, guest editor Denise Duhamel brings her wit and enthusiasm and her commitment to poetry in all its wide variety to bear on her choices for The Best American Poetry 2013. These acts of imagination—from known stars and exciting newcomers—testify to the vitality of an art form that continues to endure and flourish, defying dour predictions of its demise, in the digital age. This edition of the most important poetry anthology in the United States 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.
