"Pulitzer Prize winner Wright is on the hook as guest editor for the latest edition of this essential annual, and he asks, basically, what and who makes a ‘Best American Poet’? The poets he selected represent quality and diversity…. This is a fun, varied, and generous collection of poems by 75 poets at various stages in their writing lives, all of whom will inspire a wide spectrum of poetry lovers." — Mark Eleveld, Booklist
