Sara Eliza Johnson's stunning, deeply visceral first collection, Bone Map (2013 National Poetry Series Winner), pulls shards of tenderness from a world on the verge of collapse, where violence and terror infuse the body, the landscape, and dreams: a handful of blackberries offered from bloodied arms, bee stings likened to pulses of sunlight, a honeycomb... more...

Ted Kooser sees a writer?s workbooks as the stepping-stones on which a poet makes his way across the stream of experience toward a poem.

Kooser, winner of the Pultizer Prize and a former U.S. poet laureate,... more...

In his prize-winning poetry collection Reliquaria , R. A. Villanueva embraces liminal, in-between spaces in considering an ever-evolving Filipino American identity.

Unique individuals of fiery temperament, Ernest Hemingway and Ezra Pound made an odd pair on the streets of 1920s Paris. If the elder cane-carrying Pound appeared the out-of-date poet, Hemingway was the epitome of his generation's Flaming Youth. Meeting on the high ground of art, these two literary giants formed a friendship that survived until... more...
