He is, with Star Black, co-director of the KGB Poetry Reading Series in New York City.

But the arrival of his anthology, and the thrust of what it contains, are evidence of a swing back to what some would call "formal conservatism" and others "the paradoxical liberation of restraint. As that last word implies, it's hard not to connect shifts in poetic fashion with those in sexual morality.

This unique anthology has as its focus the notion of form in contemporary poetry. No subject has attracted more vigorous discussion within the community of poets and critics in the past ten years. If we are to understand what form is and how it shapes poetic expression, we must turn to the poems themselves for clues. And if we are very lucky, we can listen to the voice of the poets who wrote them.  In Ecstatic Occasions, Expedient Forms, contemporary poets have selected one poem, commenting on the occasion of its creation and on the form the poem eventually took. Originally published in 1987 with a selection of 65 poets, this revised and expanded edition adds selections by twenty additional poets. Other revisions include an enlarged glossary of terms, and more expanded biographies of individual poets. The range of contributors is wide, and includes John Ashbery, John Cage, Rita Dove, Alice Fulton, Marilyn Hacker, Yusef Komunyakaa, James Merrill, Thylias Moss, Robert Pinsky, Charles Simic, and Richard Wilbur. Among the new contributions is Wyn Cooper's poem "Fun," which was the basis for Sheryl Crow's Grammy-award winning song "All I Wanna Do."

I’m not sure I buy the idea of “rating” a poetry anthology. This book is in essence an exploration of form in poetry and of the way different poets work with, and hold the concept of, form. It consists of 85 poems with essays by the poets about their understanding of form and/or the role of form in their particular poems. The distinguished editor chose a broad range of contemporary poets. Any given reader will like or not like a particular poet or poem. In some cases, I found the accompanying essay more powerful or effective than the poem it addressed. This is all about personal taste. This is a credible and very interesting anthology that’s succeeds in presenting a good variety of voices, styles and perspectives on the art of writing.

This is really a fun book. The structure of it is original and ingenious; 85 poets print one of their poems, and then write a short essay about the process of writing the poem. More than any book I've ever read about "the poet's journey" or "the process of writing poetry" or anything else, this offers insight into the process of writing and the evolution of a work. And it offers 85 different perspectives. I love this book.

This was a text for an English class, and is one of the text books that I didn't sell back- lots of really great poetry.
