Poetry Magazine April 2018 Reviews

  • Joseph Dante

    More issues like this, please. Diverse, engaging, relevant. Would like to see more lesser-known poets who haven't published twenty books already and won every single award imaginable.

    Engaging approach in this issue, which, as an introductory editor’s note explains, “presents work from three of many…active communities: Split This Rock, a gathering of those who work for social justice; Black Girl Magic—the name is self-explanatory, but these are poets connected to the BreakBeat poets featured in our April 2015 issue; and Snow City Arts, an organization that provides instruction…to children in hospitals.

    Engaging approach in this issue, which, as an introductory editor’s note explains, “presents work from three of many…active communities: Split This Rock, a gathering of those who work for social justice; Black Girl Magic—the name is self-explanatory, but these are poets connected to the BreakBeat poets featured in our April 2015 issue; and Snow City Arts, an organization that provides instruction…to children in hospitals. In juxtaposing work from each of these vibrant groups, we hope readers will get a sense of the vivacious energy and talent nourished wherever poets and their readers gather.” Mission accomplished. (More, please!)

    Overall I loved reading the different styles and perspectives. I plan to continue getting these monthly poetry books because i feel like my eyes have been opened a bit more to places and things i may never experience in any other way.

    This is a great issue. I particularly enjoyed the Snow City pieces. I wasn’t aware of the work that they did before, and I’d love to learn more about them. I’m more familiar with the great work that the other two groups have done in the past, and know of many of those poets already. It’s a very well weighted issue tonally and stylistically.

  • Erick Mertz

    One of the better recent issues. Lots to like, especially Araceli’s Girmay’s “sister was the wolf”, Camille T. Dungy and the long work by Kazim Ali.

    Once again though, I’m opposed to these pages that fold out from the center spine. It’s space consuming, egregious in the most valuable poetic real estate in the world. The same feeling for pictures, which in my mind, eat up poems.
