Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

180 More continues Billy Collins's program in conjunction with the Library of Congress to gather poems by the most exciting poets at work today and make them available to students, teachers, and poetry readers everywhere. Like its predecessor, 180 More is the perfect anthology for anyone who appreciates thoughtful, clear poems that are an immediate pleasure to read and a lasting source of insight and feeling. And for readers who have lost touch with poetry, this collection will lead them back to the fold.

Representing the richness and diversity of today's poetry, the anthology includes poems by Sharon Olds, Robert Bly, Franz Wright, Paul Muldoon, Jane Kenyon, Galway Kinnell, Edward Hirsch, and many more. Poetry 180 implied a 180-degree turn — a turning back to poetry — and now, with 180 new poems selected by America's bestselling poet, devoted readers and newcomers alike will have another chance to enjoy the music and meaning of contemporary poetry.

Synopsis:

Come full circle with 180 new, exciting poems selected and introduced by Billy Collins.

Inspired by Billy Collinss poem-a-day program for American high schools that he began through the Library of Congress, the original Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry was a gathering of clear, contemporary poems aimed at a wide audience. In 180 More, Collins continues his ambitious mission of exposing readers of all ages to the best of todays poetry. Here are another 180 hospitable, engaging, reader-friendly poems, offering surprise and delight in a wide range of literary voices-comic, melancholy, reflective, irreverent. If poetry is the original travel literature, this anthology contains 180 vehicles ready to carry you away to unexpected places.
