Too many amazing poems end up overlooked by the academy and excluded from the canon, remaining largely unknown to the poetry-reading public. Joy Katz and Kevin Prufer's "Dark Horses" joyfully rediscovers dozens of these poems, recognizes their power, and illuminates their significance. Seventy-five established American poets including Billy Collins, John Ashbery, Linda Bierds, Carl Phillips, C K Williams, Wanda Coleman, Miller Williams, and Dana Gioia have each selected one unjustly neglected poem, most never previously anthologized, and written a concise commentary to accompany it. Selections include forgotten gems by well known poets as well as poems by writers who have fallen into obscurity. "Dark Horses" also acts as a primer on how to creatively read a poem and a documentary of the bonds between a poem and its reader.
