Additional Information

Robert Pinsky, distinguished poet and man of letters, selects the top 100 poems from twenty-five years of The Best American Poetry

This special edition celebrates twenty-five years of the Best American Poetry series, which has become an institution. From its inception in 1988, it has been hotly debated, keenly monitored, ardently advocated (or denounced), and obsessively scrutinized. Each volume consists of seventy-five poems chosen by a major American poet acting as guest editor—from John Ashbery in 1988 to Mark Doty in 2012, with stops along the way for such poets as Charles Simic, A. R. Ammons, Louise Glück, Adrienne Rich, Billy Collins, Heather McHugh, and Kevin Young. Out of the 1,875 poems that have appeared in The Best American Poetry, here are 100 that Robert Pinsky, the distinguished poet and man of letters, has chosen for this milestone edition.

As stated earlier, I have the whole series, and besides to my delight. It was edited by Robert Pinsky, one of my favorite poets. An extra bonus I was not expecting. I love the idea of changing editors every year. Only one year of the twenty five was disappointing. I wont mention which one at this time.
Wonderful, powerful poetry with dynamic discussion of the works. Interesting choice of poems. Educational and fun. I am glad I purchased the book.
I own every issue of the American Poetry series since 1988. But I still appreciate the collection of the Best of the Best in this new volume. The selection is excellent and demonstrates that American poetry is not only alive and well, it can produce masterpieces of the written word.
