I've decided to 5 contemporary books of poetry in my intro to poetry class in the spring. I think I am going to create a blog for the class to allow for informal discussion and supplemental readings.
I'm still trying to decide on the 5 books. Four of the five possible books:
1) Jeff Clark, The Little Door Slides Back
2) Tony Tost, Invisible Bride
3) Lisa Jarnot, Ring of Fire
4) Peter Gizzi, Some Values of Landscape and Weather
I feel confident of choice # 2 and choice # 3. I do want some diversity of books. I think Tost and Jarnot's books are distinct enough. But I am not sure about the others yet.
Any suggestions of three books of contemporary poetry I might use? By contemporary I simply mean in print and published in the last five years or so.
If any of yous have suggestions, I would love a nice list.
