Not to repeat myself too much, but here's another April--another National Poetry Month where people are encouraged to buy books of poetry by familiar names at chain bookstores around the U.S.
Here are a couple of books by poets who aren't household names that will be worth the money you'll avoid spending on the umpteenth Pablo Neruda or Robert Frost compilation:
Sarah Maclay--THE WHITE BRIDE http://www.amazon.com/White-Bride-Sarah-Maclay/dp/1597320420/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1207340860&sr=1-2
RD Armstrong--FIRE AND RAIN SELECTED POEMS 1993-2007 VOLUME 1 http://www.lulu.com/browse/search.php?search_forum=-1&search_cat=2&show_results=topics&return_chars=200&search_keywords=&keys=&fSearch=RD+Armstrong&fSearchFamily=2&fSubmitSearch.x=10&fSubmitSearch.y=7
Remember, National Poetry Month should be about discovering new (or new to you) poets and their work.
