Entering its ninth year, Best New Poets has established itself as a crucial venue for rising poets and a valuable resource for poetry lovers. The only publication of its kind, this annual anthology is made up exclusively of work by writers who have not yet published a full-length book. The poems included in this eclectic sampling represent the best from the many that have been nominated by the country's top literary magazines and writing programs, as well as some two thousand additional poems submitted through an open online competition. The work of the fifty writers represented here provides the best perspective available on the continuing vitality of poetry as it is being practiced today.

This collection of fifty newish poems is worth reading.

Although the quality of poems is uneven, the reader is nevertheless rewarded with an oddly satisfying potpourri of personalities, contexts, and styles.

Among my personal favorites: "Wild Rabbits Have Sharp Eyes" and "The Gospel According to Rust."
