April is...National Poetry Month!

We know how busy you are, & how hard it is to shop for National Poetry Month, so we have suggestions...

American Hybrid: A Norton Anthology of New Poetry

The American hybrid is a wonderful collection of contemporary American poetry. With poems by Stacy Doris, Paul Hoover, Forrest Gander, Robert Hass, Rosmarie Waldrop, & many, many others, we see the Hybrid, the merging of the traditional & experimental styles. This is a very readable & enjoyable collection of poems.

My Vocabulary Did This To Me: The Collected Poetry of Jack Spicer

Finally we have a complete collection of Jack Spicer's work. The Berkeley Renaissance poet's published & unpublished work has been collected by Kevin Killian & Peter Gizzi. This is a beautiful & long awaited book.

World's EndPablo Neruda

A great looking, bilingual edition translated by William O'Daly.

Ashbery: Collected Poems 1956-1987

George Albon says: Amazing but true, this first volume of John Asbery's collected poetry goes from Some Trees to April Galleons a colossal collection, in other words, the heart of his achievment. Also included are a hundred pages of uncollected poems– a new volume in itself.

George Oppen: New Collected Poems

Oppen is one of my all-time favorite poets & the beauty about buying another book of his collected poems is that this book comes with a CD of Oppen reading, it really is a beautiful thing.
