Inspired by Billy Collins's poem-a-day program for American high schools that
he began through the Library of Congress, the original Poetry 180: A Turning
Back to Poetry was a gathering of clear, contemporary poems aimed at a wide
audience. In 180 More, Collins continues his ambitious mission of
exposing readers of all ages to the best of today's poetry. Here are another 180
hospitable, engaging, reader-friendly poems, offering surprise and delight in a
wide range of literary voices--comic, melancholy, reflective, irreverent. If
poetry is the original travel literature, this anthology contains 180 vehicles
ready to carry you away to unexpected places.
With poems by
Carol Ann Duffy
W. S. Merwin
Naomi Shihab Nye
and many more
