In the dynamic, sensual language of Peter Balakian‘s Pulitzer Prizewinning collection, Ozone Journal, we are reminded that the history of atrocity, trauma, and forgetting is both global and ancient; but we are reminded, too, of the beauty and richness of culture and the resilience of love. J.D. McClatchy’s Plundered Hearts is the definitive selection of the elegant work by a poet at the forefront of American poetry for more than three decades. XX: Poems for the Twentieth Century is award-winning poet Campbell McGrath’s astonishing sequence of one hundred poems—one per year—written in a vast range of forms, and in the voices of figures as varied as Picasso and Mao, Frida Kahlo and Elvis Presley.
