This landmark volume captures three millennia of Greek poetry—more than 1,000 poems and 200 poets. From the epics of Homeric Greece to the historical and erotic ironies of Cavafy, from the romances, hymns, and bawdy rhymes of Byzantium to the innovative voices of a resurgent twentieth century, this anthology brings together the diverse strands of the Greek poetic tradition.

All That Gorgeous Pitiless Song

Poetry. "Foust brings to life an immense range of experience and feeling. This poet's emotional intelligence correlates, too, with her formal skill, that unique talent for phrase and rhythm with which she makes a whole world palpable. A superb poet and a tremendous book"--Peter Campion.

The Best Disguise

The Best Disguise by Susan McLean, recipient of the 2009 Richard Wilbur Award, is a remarkable collection of varied lyric poems that examine contemporary life with wit, insight, and a profound intensity. As Philip Dacey comments, "In any mode -- plangent or bawdy, searing or witty -- the poems in this book consistently project both a consummate artistry and an affecting humanity." Despite the author s obvious erudition and formal skills, the poems in The Best Disguise are as accessible as they are affecting and memorable.

Permanent Address

Lorna Knowles Blake is a poet who writes with elegance, wit, and formal invention. Her subjects are love, marriage, family, and the kinds of commitment needed to sustain them. Reading her work, one sees again and again the contingencies of domestic life transformed by those rituals that give them place and permanence. Permanent Address is a wise and joyful collection by a poet of impressive accomplishment. - Charles Martin.

Sixty Sonnets

A.E. Stallings writes that “like the minutes of the hour, these Sixty Sonnets both combine to make a whole and shine as individual moments. While groups of these sonnets occasionally suggest a narrative—refreshingly, like the fugitives and weary academics that people these pages—they work alone. The newspaper crime blotter itself, from which, perhaps, some of these incidents are torn, speaks up as a single sonnet.
