Award-winning poet David Wagoner and renowned editor David Lehman present the twenty-second edition of the Best American Poetry series--"a 'best' anthology that really lives up to its title" (Chicago Tribune). Eagerly anticipated by scholars, students, readers, and poets alike, Scribner's Best American Poetry series has achieved brand-name status in the literary world, serving as a yearly guide to who's who in American poetry. Known for his marvelous narrative skill and humane wit, David Wagoner is one of the few poets of his generation to win the universal admiration of his peers. Working in conjunction with series editor David Lehman, Wagoner brings his refreshing eye to this year's anthology. With new work by established poets, such as Billy Collins, Denise Duhamel, Mark Doty, and Bob Hicok, The Best American Poetry 2009 also features some of tomorrow's leading luminaries. Readers of all ages and backgrounds will treasure this illuminating collection of modern American verse. With its high-profile editorship and its generous embrace of American poetry in all its exuberant variety, the Best American Poetry series continues to be, as Robert Pinsky says, "as good a comprehensive overview of contemporary poetry as there can be."    … (more)

At first I wasn't too pleased, but once I got further into the book the poems were written in a fovrable style. The editor groups poems of particular styles together, and they seemed to progress from more traditional to those that have a more modern flavor. ( )
