Sarah Koz (sarahkoz) | 7 comments This book is elegant and striking. The extensive and varied collection of poets can appeal to anyone, even people that may not normally read poetry. I've cherished my copy for years, and given away several to fellows in my life. Definitely a worthwhile giveaway.

Jay Amberg | 11 comments Hi. Thanks for the comment.

When I compiled 52 Poems for Men, I chose poems that would speak to men about matters that concern us, but that we don't always talk about--growing up, love, loss, fatherhood... I picked poems that captured moments, gave glimpses of life, and cut quickly to the point. My personal favorite changes from month to month, year to year. But tonight the one that speaks most deeply to me is "August from My Desk" by Roland Flint.


Sarah Koz (sarahkoz) | 7 comments It may be time for me to reread mine. What are some of your other favorite poems from this collection?

Jay Amberg | 11 comments I have a lot of favorites, of course. I go back to different poems depending on how I feel at a given time, but I always return to Margaret Atwood's "Variation on the Word Sleep" and to the second part of James Wright's "Two Hangovers". I'm invariably taken by the final eight lines of Robert Frost's "Birches" and the last six lines of Tennyson's "Ulysses".
