Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dazzling new anthology of 180 contemporary poems, selected and introduced by America?s Poet Laureate, Billy Collins.

Inspired by Billy Collins?s poem-a-day program with the Library of Congress, Poetry 180 is the perfect anthology for readers who appreciate engaging, thoughtful poems that are an immediate pleasure.

A 180-degree turn implies a turning back — in this case, to poetry. A collection of 180 poems by the most exciting poets at work today, Poetry 180 represents the richness and diversity of the form, and is designed to beckon readers with a selection of poems that are impossible not to love at first glance. Open the anthology to any page and discover a new poem to cherish, or savor all the poems, one at a time, to feel the full measure of contemporary poetry?s vibrance and abundance.

With poems by Catherine Bowman, Lucille Clifton, Billy Collins, Dana Gioia, Edward Hirsch, Galway Kinnell, Kenneth Koch, Philip Levine, Thomas Lux, William Matthews, Frances Mayes, Paul Muldoon, Naomi Shihab Nye, Sharon Olds, Katha Pollitt, Mary Jo Salter, Charles Simic, David Wojahn, Paul Zimmer, and many more.

Review:

"Where was this book when I was struggling to teach Creative Writing: Contemporary Poetry to juniors and seniors in high school? Any such course today has to consider Poetry 180 as a textbook and every library needs a copy on its shelves." James Beschta, KLIATT

Fantastic anthology. Tons of new poets that I fell in love with, and all the poems are really accessible -- but don't think "accessible" means "silly" or "childish" -- all these poems are fabulous on their own. It's the perfect book to introduce a new reader to poetry or for someone who is wary of poetry. My personal favorites include "To You" by Kenneth Koch, "Cartoon Physics, Part I" by Nick Flynn, and many more.
