"There is, it seems, an invisible question mark behind America's Favorite Poem. What is it, who writes it? Jason Koo's ruminations are capacious enough to consider a Jumbotroned Jay Z, the BQE and LeBron James's elbow yet intimate enough to ask "whether I'll ever feel like I have enough, whether I am enough." America's Favorite Poem is full irreverent swag and swagger, but it's ultimately Koo's exploration of what we consume and what consumes us that makes this book such a provocative and mesmerizing achievement." Terrance Hayes "How would Whitman have written if he were the offspring of Stan Getz and Kim Gordon? The answer is like Jason Koo, but not the entire answer-alongside the jazz and propulsion of these muscular poems is a commanding voice that is at once comical and intimate. America's Favorite Poem is a brazen collection that swaggers as it sings." David Hernandez

Edited by the National Book Award-winning poet Terrance Hayes, the foremost annual anthology of contemporary American poetry returns: “A ‘best’ anthology that really lives up to its title” (Chicago Tribune). The first book of poetry that Terrance Hayes ever bought was the 1990 edition of The Best American Poetry, edited by Jorie Graham. Hayes was then an undergrad at a small South Carolina college. He has since published four highly honored books of poetry, is a professor of poetry at the University of Pittsburgh, has appeared multiple times in the series, and is one of today’s most decorated poets. His brazen, restless poems capture the diversity of American culture with singular artistry, grappling with facile assumptions about identity and the complex repercussions of race history in this country. Always eagerly anticipated, the 2014 volume of The Best American Poetry begins with David Lehman’s “state-of-the-art” foreword followed by an inspired introduction from Terrance Hayes on his picks for the best American poems of the past year. Following the poems is the apparatus for which the series has won acclaim: notes from the poets about the writing of their poems.

A splendid collection of over 200 poems by English and American authors, this volume brings the rich variety and creative power of the poetic imagination to every reader. Unique to this edition is the beautiful artwork on each page, sixteen different delicate designs. Poetry lovers will find works that inspire, influence, and move them to laughter, tears, or quiet thoughtfulness. There are works from Milton and Wordsworth, from Shakespeare and Byron. There are old friends, such as Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," Tennyson's "Break, Break, Break," and Longfellow's "The Wreck of the Hesperus," and less familiar poems such as W. O. Bourne's "The Heart's Fine Gold," and Bayard Taylor's "The Goblet." Here, too, are unfamiliar works, selections by unknown poets, and neglected pieces of the masters. This collection provides the joy of rediscovering an old friend, the surprise in meeting a new one, and an introduction to the lasting pleasure of poetry.
