“Poetry has done was long seemed impossible: It has reclaimed its place at the center of American poetry. More, it has become one of the most interesting literary periodicals of any kind published today. Traditionally, only poets read Poetry: thanks to [editorial] innovations, it has become indispensable reading for anyone who cares about American literature.”
–Adam Kirsch
