THE OPEN DOOR
l00 Poems, l00 Years of Poetry Magazine
Edited by Don Share and Christian Wiman

Cover

To celebrate the centennial of Poetry magazine, the magazine’s editors have assembled this stunning collection—a book not of the best or most familiar poems of the century, but one that uses Poetry’s long history and incomparable archives to reveal unexpected echoes and conversations across time, surprising juxtapositions and enduring themes, and, most of all, to show that poetry—and Poetry—remains a vibrant, important part of today’s cultural landscape.

See a list of the poems.


“There is nothing quite like it anywhere else:
Poetry has had imitators, but has so far survived them all.
It is an American Institution.”—T. S. Eliot

“The histories of modern poetry and of
Poetry in America are almost interchangeable,
certainly inseparable.”—A. R. Ammons
