What Were Your Favorite Books of Poetry in 2006?
Some 2006 poetry lists:
From Jordan Davis at Equanimity
From Joel Brouwer at NBCC
I like year-end lists. One of the things I find is that I've completely missed many, many books. I missed the John Yau. I've never even seen a copy. I had no idea Gerald Stern had a new book in 2006. Paul Muldoon, whose work I've enjoyed in the past, had a new book out that I completely missed. I know if I'd've seen it, I would have liked it very much. Etc. And many others on these two lists I've never heard of . . .
So, two lists then: A list of books one has read and enjoyed, and then a list of things one never saw . . . which is somewhat of a difficult list to write, consisting, as it does, to quote Rumsfeld (the only time I'll ever do that): "There are known unknowns, and unknown unknowns."
