Poetry. American poetry has a rich tradition of taking on important political and social events. The 99 poems in this diverse and dynamic new collection edited by Dean Rader demonstrate how engagement with what Wallace Stevens called "the actual world" does not diminish poetry's punch rather it makes it hit harder. These are poems of anger, love, protest, humor, contemplation, hope, frustration, and beauty. These are poems of and for the real America. Contributors include Robert Pinsky, Camille T. Dungy, Edward Hirsch, Dana Levin, Timothy Donnelly, Bob Hicok, Heid Erdrich, Dorianne Laux, Troy Jollimore, Brian Clements, Patty Seyburn, LeAnne Howe, Ray Gonzalez, Fred Marchant, Martha Collins, Lee Sharkey, Matthew Zapruder, Gillian Conoley and 71 others.
