Edited by Kim Addonizio.
“Unlike novelists and bad-boy memoirists, emerging poets are unlikely to sprawl on Oprah’s couch, date starlets, or rouse bidding wars. With an alert ear for new voices, this anthology offers a different kind of validation: that of being well heard. The result is a vibrant smorgasbord…. [Best New Poets] bears evidence of the insistent inquiries of self and the world that drive poetry.”–Foreword.
