    Despite the stand out names, there were, in the end, only a few of these essays that felt insightful or memorable. The book, then, becomes more an anthology than a discussion of poem, a shame.

    I loved reading the selected poets' poems and their thoughts about the meaning and inspiration behind those poems. This was an interesting read.

    The best thing about this 2013 anthology is the introductory short pieces from the poets on their process or motivation for the poem. Fascinating to read the widely varied responses. I enjoyed about one-half of the poems included. Laura Kasischke,Alan Shapiro, Heather McHugh, Linda Gregerson, Tony Hoagland. It is worth giving it a try, even if it is a bit uneven.

    Lots of interesting poetry that I probably wouldn't have otherwise been exposed to. Nice testimonies, too.
