"In his introduction to The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry, Michael Simms writes, 'Poetry is just like people talking.' He further explains the ways it goes beyond common speech, saying poetry, 'has something special or amazing about it, something that makes us think, wonder, or marvel.' It is this idea of everyday language, heightened and crafted to give the reader a sense of amazement, that defines the aesthetic choices made by editors Michael Simms, Giullana Certo, and Christine Stroud as they curated this collection of poems by 106 American poets. The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary American Poetry offers a snapshot of the poetry landscape at the end of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first century. These poems contain contemporary poetry's celebration of American life and language as well as its concerns about inclusion and varied voices."--Anthony Frame "Weave Magazine" (5/16/2016 12:00:00 AM) "Throughout this anthology the reader is confronted with the familiar--family, work, illness, war--and by that special alchemy of language put under pressure, what we call poetry, the mundane is made extraordinary."--Anthony Frame "The Pittsburgh Post" (2/15/2015 12:00:00 AM)
