21. Best Poetry Books 2014

By Jonathon Sturgeon, Flavorwire on Dec 5, 2014 12:45pm

If you fell asleep on poetry in 2014, you might not actually be asleep: you might be dead. Poetry this year not only proved itself the liveliest and healthiest genre of writing, it also showed itself to be the most intellectually voracious. (I would even argue that one of the best American novels of 2014 was written by a poet.) Here are the ten best books of poetry from 2014. Frankly, they may just be the ten best books.

  • Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals, Patricia Lockwood (Penguin)
  • Mature Themes, Andrew Durbin (Nightboat Books)
  • Rome, Dorothea Lasky (Liveright / WW Norton)
  • If the Tabloids Are True What Are You?, Matthea Harvey (Graywolf)
  • Prelude to Bruise, Saeed Jones (Coffee House Press)
  • Citizen, Claudia Rankine (Graywolf)
  • Repast: Tea, Lunch, and Cocktails, D. A. Powell (Graywolf)
  • Mala, Monica McClure (Poor Claudia)
  • The Second Sex, Michael Robbins, (Penguin)
  • Titanic, Cecilia Corrigan (Lake Forest College Press)

(Jeweils mit Leseprobe)
