One of the most popular poets since Robert Frost, former Poet Laureate Billy Collins guest edits the 2006 edition of the lauded annual anthology of contemporary American poetry.
Billy Collins, one of our most beloved poets, has chosen poems of wit, humor, imagination, and surprise, in a range of styles and forms, for "The Best American Poetry 2006." The result is a celebration of the pleasures of poetry.
In his charming and candid introduction Collins explains how he chose seventy-five poems from among the thousands he considered. With insightful comments from the poets illuminating their work, and series editor David Lehman's thought-provoking foreword, "The Best American Poetry 2006" is a brilliant addition to a series that links the most noteworthy verse and prose poems of our time to a readership as discerning as it is devoted to the art of poetry.
