Synopsis

Sales have escalated for THE BEST AMERICAN POETRY since the debut volume in 1988, and what has become a must for poetry lovers should stir even more excitement with Robert Bly as this year's guest editor. An award-winning poet and translator, Robert Bly is best known for his notorious role as leader of the men's movement in America and his bestselling book IRON JOHN. Bly has chosen the seventy-five best poems of the year from a host of contenders culled from a wide range of literary magazines and journals. He has selected the work of celebrated poets John Ashbery, Anne Carson, Henri Cole, Louise Gluck, Philip Levine, and Richard Wilbur, as well as poems from innovative newcomers. With comments from the poets elucidating their work and with a foreword by Series Editor David Lehman, THE BEST AMERICAN POETRY 1999 is a stunning addition to the series.
