Hardcover: Scribner, 2020.
The 2020 edition is guest edited by Paisley Rekdal, the award-winning poet and author of Nightingale and Utah’s Poet Laureate. The Los Angeles Times called her “a poet of observation and history...[who] revels in detail but writes vast, moral poems that help us live in a world of contraries.” In The Best American Poetry 2020, she has selected a fascinating array of work that speaks eloquently to the “contraries” of our present moment in time.
