"Each year, a vivid snapshot of what a distinguished poet finds exciting, fresh and memorable: and over the years, as good a comprehensive overview of contem-porary poetry as there can be."--Robert Pinsky "A year's worth of the very best!"--People "A 'best' anthology that really lives up to its title."--Chicago Tribune "An essential purchase."--Washington Post "For the small community of American poets, the Best American Poetry is the Michelin Guide, the Reader's Digest, and the Prix Goncourt."--L'Observateur "The Best American Poetry series has become one of the mainstays of the poetry publication world. For each volume, a guest editor is enlisted to cull the collective output of large and small literary journals published that year to select 75 of the year's 'best' poems. The guest editor is also asked to write an introduction to the collection, and the anthologies would be indispensable for these essays alone; combined with [David] Lehman's'state-of-poetry' forewords and the guest editors' introductions, these anthologies seem to capture the zeitgeist of the current attitudes in American poetry."--Academy of American Poets
