22 Sep Penguin Modern Poets #2
Michael Robbins, Patricia Lockwood, Timothy Thornton
First introduced in the early 1960s, the Penguin Modern Poets was relaunched last summer with a new series aiming for the same goal: to introduce contemporary poetry to the general reader. Each of the seriess volumes exhibits the work of three remarkable poets who are currently writing. The series follows a shared rationale where the poets work in every issue is interconnected. So for example the first volume by Emily Berry, Anne Carson and Sophie Collins is about female experience in the present, and all the way back to ancient Greece. Whereas in the second issue it is the humorous style which distinguishes the writing of the three poets…etc. With six volumes issued to date, and a new volume coming up every three months, the series is potentially unlimited.
