There are poems from various authors from all over the world compiled together for high school students to connect with. All poems chosen have a sense of craft and segue into other poets’ works. Themes range from coming of age, to loss of hope, but all associated with the high school atmosphere.
  Backus2 | Sep 24, 2013 |
An amazing anthology of contemporary poetry picked from one of the best, Billy Collins. He really knows a lot about his craft and you can tell by the wide selection his chose for this collection. A follow up to his "poetry 180: turning back to poetry", this book has all the greats from our time. From the modern confessional poet Sharon Olds', "First hour" to the harsh and sharp words of "Why I don't take naps in the afternoon" by Don Gerber. "Extraordinary poems for the everyday poet" is exactly what this book portrays. This is a great starter book for anyone looking to get into contemporary poetry, and a new favorite for someone who appreciates it immensely already. ( )

An interesting assortment. Some of these are among my favorites, others not so much. I very much like the Poetry 180 concept, and think both of the books are worth having. ( )
  NicholasPayne | Nov 10, 2009 |
Good anthology of accessible poems. A couple of favorites were "Appeal to the Grammarians" by Paul Viola and "Jeep Cherokee" by Bruce A Jacobs. ( )
  snash | Feb 21, 2009 |
All different kinds of poems from around the world compiled just for high schoolers to be read every day of the week. Edited by Billy Collins (former poet laureate) to be enjoyed not analyzed. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0812972961, Paperback)

Come full circle with 180 new, exciting poems selected and introduced by Billy Collins.

Inspired by Billy Collins’s poem-a-day program for American high schools that he began through the Library of Congress, the original Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry was a gathering of clear, contemporary poems aimed at a wide audience. In 180 More, Collins continues his ambitious mission of exposing readers of all ages to the best of today’s poetry. Here are another 180 hospitable, engaging, reader-friendly poems, offering surprise and delight in a wide range of literary voices–comic, melancholy, reflective, irreverent. If poetry is the original travel literature, this anthology contains 180 vehicles ready to carry you away to unexpected places.
