The Most Anticipated Poetry Books of 2016

From much-needed surveys of our greatest practicing poets, like Kevin Young’s Blue Laws, to new collections from post-war masters, like Adrienne Rich’s 1950-2012, this year looks to be one that lays the groundwork for poetry that will be taught, read, and discussed in the coming years. Otherwise: startlingly assured, original debuts and recovered poetry from Pablo Neruda. It’s still early in the year, but there’s already much to anticipate.
