In this urgent outpouring of American voices, our poets speak to us as they shelter in place, addressing our collective fear, grief, and hope from eloquent and diverse individual perspectives.As the novel coronavirus and its devastating effects began to spread in the United States and around the world, Alice Quinn reached out to poets across the country to see if, and what, they were writing under quarantine. Overwhelmed by the response, the onetime New Yorker poetry editor and recent former director of the Poetry Society of America began collecting the compassionate verses that were arriving in her inbox, assembling this various, intimate, and intricate portrait of our suddenly altered reality. Whether grieving for relatives they are separated from, recovering from illness themselves, attending to suddenly complicated household tasks, or considering the bravery of medical workers and the inequities in our society that amplify sorrow and demand our engagement, our poets are just like us, but with the words to describe what can feel unspeakably difficult and strange. From fierce and resilient to wistful, darkly humorous, and emblematically reverent about the earth and the vulnerability of human beings in frightening times, the poems in this collection provide wisdom and companionship, depths of feeling that enliven our spirits, and a poignant summoning to the page of spring's inevitable return.… (mere)

Compiled early during the COVID 19 pandemic, this collection of poems offers different perspectives on the strange times in which we were living. Most poems were written in free verse style. Sometimes what was offered as a poem seemed more like prose. As I read the collection, I pondered when poetry went from rhymes and meters to free verse--and why rhymes and meters are no longer favored. I enjoyed some poems more than others, which is true for almost any anthology and a reader. Some of the poems were so left-leaning politically that I disliked them; some were just so bloated and rambling I disliked them. I generally enjoyed the ones which more clearly reflected my own experiences during the pandemic. ( )

The editor of this anthology notes that the ‘original iteration’ of this collection of poetry was gathered early, in March and April, and first published as an ebook in the spring of 2020. I have read a hardcover released last November to which twenty-two further poems have been added and the resulting collection responded to both the pandemic and other 2020 horrors (can we really separate the pandemic and the deaths of George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks and Breonna Taylor?)….

The poetry in this collection is wonderfully varied, by authors both familiar and not. In some of the poems we easily recognize that early reckoning with this new horror that we all have shared, in other poems the foci is less direct, using, for example, nature as a metaphor. Yet in others, the foci are broadened and speaks more holistically about the era. Overall, like most collections, each reader may respond differently to different poems. Below, I post three poems from the book, the last, “Weather” by Claudine Rankin, blew me away because it made a connection I had not considered before. See what you think. ( )
