Before National Poetry Month is really gone, we wanted to take at least one more opportunity to point you toward some great poetry for your eReader, so here are a few more suggestions:
Fire to Fire by Mark Doty: Doty won the National Book Award for this collection of new and selected poems. His work is highly accessible, but unrelentingly intense and deep: Doty writes better than anyone about love, desire, and life on the streets of New York City. Kindle. Sony. B&N.
Green Squall by Jay Hopler: This was another Yale Younger Poets Prize winner, chosen by Louise Gluck. It didn’t get talked about much, but this blogger loved it. Hopler writes about an inner life as changable and sometimes scary as the weather on the hurricane-end of Florida. Kindle. B&N.
Selected Poems by Frank O’Hara: Here’s a kind of classic–O’Hara was teh quintessential New York poet, chatty, ubiquitous, and sexy and funny as hell. This new selected will give you a good idea of the poet he was. Kindle. Sony. B&N.
