it has begun…
December 1, 2016
Whatever holiday you choose to celebrate, or even if you ignore the holidays all together, one benefit of the year’s end is that publications offer up their “best-of” literary lists. It has begun, and we’ve created a best-of banner to accompany our listings of lists as they appear here. So, without further delay, let the season begin:
- The Washington Post lists the best poetry collections of 2016.
- The New York Times lists the hundred best books of the year, including five poetry titles.
- The New York Times has also posted its notable children’s books list. While not listed as poetry, many are, in fact, written in verse.
- The Times Literary Supplement offers recommendations of a title or two by select authors, including some poets.
