Coldfront Magazine has published a selection of the Top 40 Books of Poetry for 2012. These lists are helpful for those of us who are looking for new poets emerging from their Venus shells (e.g., Angela Veronica Wong, S.E. Smith, Patricia Lockwood, and many others) and also well-known poets whose books may have flown under one’s personal radar (e.g., Frederick Seidel, John Ashbery, John Yau and D.A. Powell). I am providing the link here for anyone interested. I know that by going through this list, there a few new purchases I am going to make today.
