Happy National Poetry Month!

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
