Happy National Poetry Month! Check out our amazing Edelweiss collection of nearly 200(!) great poetry books and then hear some poems from our friends at Farrar, Straus & Giroux—literally.

Inspired by John Giornio’s classic Dial-A-Poem, FSG made a poetry hotline of their own. Each day you can call 949-DIAL-FSG (949-342-5374) to hear President and Publisher (and poet himself) Jonathan Galassi recite one of his favorite poems from a recently published collection. They’re putting new poems on the answering machine every weekday, so keep calling!

Happy National Poetry Month!

Happy National Poetry Month! We're fortunate to have an abundance of great poetry books—so many, that we've created an Edelweiss collection for you. Here are a few that we're loving:

CARIBOU by Charles Wright
Charles Wright’s truth—the truth of nature, of man’s yearning for the divine, of aging—is at the heart of the renowned poet’s latest collection. “Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Critics Circle Award, National Book Award, among other honors, Wright offers up a spare, no-nonsense approach that serves his subjects well, enabling a kind of spiritual poetry for those who resist spirituality. Pointed as ever, his work continues to engage and explore life's unsolvable mysteries.” — Library Journal, starred review 

DIRECTING HERBERT WHITE by James Franco
The debut poetry collection by the multi-talented James Franco (yes, THAT James Franco), has Hollywood—fame, celebrity, the promise of becoming an artist—at its center. “Franco’s bold and magnetic examination of life in the mirrored hall of make-believe and fame taps deeply into our collective mythology.” — Booklist

METAPHYSICAL DOG by Frank Bidart
Bidart's collection was a finalist for the National Book Award and recently won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry. “The poems of METAPHYSICAL DOG are at once emotionally bracing and full of intellectual reward. Bidart is widely admired by other influential poets; he seems in line for even more attention than he has received.” — Publishers Weekly, starred review

Happy National Poetry Month

To celebrate this most eloquent of months, I've picked out three poetry collections that we think will get you thinking.

All the Whiskey in Heaven
Charles Bernstein

"This gathering of 30 years worth of work by the prominent L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poet and essayist offers a rigorous critique of the art of poetry itself, which means, among other things, a thorough investigation of language and the mind. [...] These exhilarating, challenging poems raise countless essential questions about the form and function of poetry." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
