2014

Say Goodbye to 2014 (...with New Poetry Titles!)

Fireworks2014 has come and gone, but not without leaving behind some new poetry to enjoy. Here we have a sampling from our catalog of titles published in the past year. Some are rooted in a specific historical context; many are situated among the flotsam and jetsam of our contemporary life. There are collections spanning the entire careers of seasoned poets, some writings are offered posthumously, and some are brought by names we might not yet recognize. All attempt to give their own interpretation of just what it means to live. I think we could all use a little profundity to kick start our New Year, yes? 

National Book Awards 2014: Poetry Edition

If you have been looking for a gateway into contemporary American poetry, the National Book Award finalists are not a terrible place to start. Five poets  acting as judges have declared these five books to be “the best” of all poetry collections published this year, with the winner being announced at the black tie awards ceremony next Wednesday evening, November 19th at 7pm.
