New Spring Poetry Books

The Academy of American Poets has assembled a list of the new poetry books this spring, with info and a sample poem for most if not all of them. Damned awesome of them, especially as National Poetry Month is right around the corner.

Below is a list of new poetry titles that will be published in spring 2008 by the sponsors of National Poetry Month. Browse the list by poet, title, or press. Click on a title to get more information and a sample poem. Support your local bookseller by searching for poetry-friendly bookstores by State at the National Poetry Map, or buy the book online at
