Poetry and Poetics
Some of these titles are published within our three series for new poetry: The Brittingham Prize in Poetry, Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, and The Four Lakes Prize in Poetry. This page includes books of original poetry, poetry in translation, biographies and memoirs of poets, and historical and critical works about poetry and poets.
“A book of love poems, honest love poems. All of Khalastchi's well-wrought declarations make clear that love only occurs in the midst of survival. His poetry reclaims an exact and exacting language for joy in the midst of a capitalist state that does not require it.”
“An unflinching look at how one tries to make order and sense of the messy dazzlement of life. The word ardent is from ardere—which means to burn—and that is precisely what I mean when I say I ardently admire this book, for it showcases an absurdly imaginative ear and heart. Nguyen is one of the strongest poetic debuts you'll come across this decade.”
