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
