Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 10th anniversary edition of this important and inspiring collection is a sweeping overview of poetry written in New York in the year after the 9/11 attacks.

This 10thanniversary edition of the popular anthology contains poems by forty-five of the most important poets of the day, as well as some of the literary world's most dynamic young voices, all writing in New York City inthe year immediately following the World Trade Center attacks.

After 9/11 poetry was everywhere--on telephone poles, on warehouse walls, in the bus shelters. People spontaneously turned topoetry to understand and cope with the tragedy of the attack. Full of humor, love, rage and fear, this diverse collection of poems attests to the power of poetry to express and to heal the human spirit.

Featuring poems by Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Dunn; Best American Poetry series editor David Lehman; National Book Award winner and New York State Poet Jean Valentine; the first ever NuyoricanSlam-Poetry champ; poets laureate of Brooklyn and Queens; and a poem and introduction by National Book Award finalist Alicia Ostriker.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
