Greg Kuzma has been a central figure in American poetry since the late 1970s. More than 1500 of his poems have appeared in such journals as The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, The Hudson Review, Georgia Review, Ohio Review, Prairie Schooner, and many others. He is the author of more than twenty volumes of poetry, and he has long been a prolific critic of contemporary American poetry with reviews appearing in some of the country’s most important journals. This new volume, Selected Poems, focuses on the best of his shorter poems—Kuzma is also a master of writing the “long” poem. These selections are culled from a number of his books, including Good News, What Friends are For, The Buffalo Shoot, A Day in the World, Adirondacks, Wind Rain and Stars and the Grass Growing, all of them out of print. Additionally, some of the selections are taken from hard-to-find, limited edition fine-press titles; their appearance in Selected Poems marks the first time they have been available to a larger readership.
