Cave Canem Anthology XII: 2008-2009
Edited by Randall Horton and Alison Meyers
Willow Books, 2012: $18.95

"While thumbing through these pages, you are encouraged to pause and notice how each poem creates its own music—there is no monotone drone, nor is there a sameness within Cave Canem XII. If you allow the internal lyric to overtake your body, then the magic of Cave Canem becomes evident. Notice the music, the line breaks, the heightened sense of assonance and consonance, the typography. For each of these contributors, poetry is as essential as breathing."

—Randall Horton & Alison Meyers, Editors

The Ringing Ear: Black Poets Lean South
Edited by Nikky Finney
The University of Georgia Press, 2007: $19.95

The Ringing Ear collects the work of 103 established and emerging African American poets. It is the first anthology of its kind focusing on what Marilyn Hacker has called "'the magnetic South,' vexed and compelling as it is in the Black American imagination."

Read a review in Rain Taxi.

"This is a distinctly southern book, a distinctly Black book, a distinctly American book—it is all these things and more."

—Kwame Dawes

Gathering Ground: A Reader Celebrating Cave Canem's First Decade
Edited by Toi Derricotte and Cornelius Eady;
Camille Dungy, Assistant Editor
The University of Michigan Press, 2006, $19.95

For newcomers and aficionados, alike, Gathering Ground assembles in one place the most innovative voices in contemporary African American poetry and boldly attests to the important position it holds in verse making today.

"This publication. . . displays the dazzling diversity of our black rainbow. CC writers, see what we have done!"

—Harryette Mullen
