The Best American Poetry 2015The Best American Poetry 2015 by Sherman Alexie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Edited by Sherman Alexie, whose introduction is fantastic, this collection gathers many of the years best poems from electronic and print journals. As with any anthology, it is a mixed bag. While many of the poems are excellent, a few felt like ironic wordplay with little emotional connection. The best poems focus on race, particularly strong are poems by Terence Hayes and Claudia Rankine. A must-read for people interested in contemporary poetry.

[I received an advanced e-galley of this book through Netgalley. The book is due to be published September 8, 2015.]
