Item description for The McSweeney's Book of Poets Picking Poets by David Orr, Ken Been, Nicky Mohan, Anders Olof Larsson, Christian Christensen, George Varian, Frances F. Berdan & Gerard S. Sloyan...
The first McSweeney's foray into contemporary poetry brings together 100 poems by 50 poets in ten poet-chains, and making the publisher wonder why it waited so long to try this. How it works: Ten poets choose a poem of their own and a poem by another poet, who then does the same, and so on unto the fifth generation. Thus D. C. Berman leads to Charles Simic by way of James Tate, and other chains run through Mary Karr, Denis Johnson, C. D. Wright, Michael Ondaatje, John Ashbery, Mark Doty, C. K. Wright, Dean Young, Yusef Komunyakaa, and dozens more.
