Now in its fifth year, The Best American Poetry has become "one of autumn's events". Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Charles Simic, guest editor of the 1992 edition, has chosen seventy-five poems from more than three dozen magazines, illustrating the dazzling variety of American poetic practice today. The poems- formal and free verse, lyric and narrative, meditative, comic, elegiac-0 testify to Mr. Simic's belief that "there's nothing more American and more hopeful than our poetry." The Washington Post Book World asserts that "it's impossible to read [these poems] without thinking that the art is healthy and vigorous. This series is the best hope we have for extending the audience" of American poetry.
