Summary Poetry's archives are incomparable, and to celebrate the magazine's centennial, Don Share and Christian Wilman combed them to create a new kind of anthology, energized by the self-imposed limitation of one hundred poems. Rather than attempting to be exhaustive or definitive--or even to offer the most familiar works--they have assembled a collection of poems that, in their juxtapositions, echo across a century of poetry.
Subject American poetry.
