Forché, Carolyn, ed. Against Forgetting: Twentieth-Century Poetry of Witness. New York: W.W. Norton, 1993.
A professor of mine mentioned this anthology in class last week. I had never heard of it, but am very much interested in poetry as activism, so I decided to check it out. I was able to find an inexpensive used copy online.
Knippen, James Henry. Would We Still Be. Kalamazoo, MI: New Issues Press, 2021.
Knippen is a close friend of mine, and I just received my pre-ordered copy of his new poetry collection!
Zambreno, Kate. To Write As If Already Dead. New York: Columbia University Press, 2021.
I love Zambreno’s book Heroines, and while I was doing some holiday shopping at the Strand yesterday I noticed that they had some autographed copies of her latest book, so I bought one.
