"A ‘best’ anthology that really lives up to its title. This BEST AMERICAN POETRY does exactly, wonderfully, what the anthology at its best can do: It gives a good sense of the strongest work now being done in several poetic modes, and it introduces us to some newer or youngish poets while featuring excellent work by more-established poets. You never feel, reading this volume, that poets have been chosen for their brand-name value or for particular stylistic or party affiliations. " — Chicago Tribune
