Publication Date: February 28th, 2023
Publisher Marketing: Copper Canyon Press celebrates its first 50 years of poetry publishing in anticipation of the next 50 years. Poetry is vital to language and living. This anthology celebrates 50 years of Copper Canyon Press publications, one extraordinary poem at a time. Since its founding, Copper Canyon has been entirely dedicated to publishing poetry books; here Editor in Chief Michael Wiegers invites press staff and board--past and present--to help curate a retrospective. The result is a collection of beloved poems from books spanning half a century: representing Pulitzer Prize-winning books, debut collections, works in translation, and rare books from Copper Canyon's early days. This book is a tribute to Copper Canyon poets and readers everywhere, because, as Gregory Orr writes, "Certain poems / In an uncertain world-- / The ones we cling to: // They bring us back."
