Wonderful collection of poetry I read time and time again. ( )

Unsure about reading anything called "contemporary" poetry. Don't be. These poems are largely accessible, and most enjoyable. ( )
  isetziol | Nov 7, 2008 |
A pretty high-powered anthology ("65 Outstanding Poets"); and while the selections are certainly impressive, I'm a bit perplexed just how Plath and Roethke (both d.1963) (...and Jarrell (d. 1965) and Berryman (d. 1972) and R.Lowell (d.1977) &c...) get included in a book of "Contemporary" poetry first published in 1990. "27 years ago" strikes me as a rather over-liberal definition of "Contemporary".
