The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Poetry, Take One
selected by Deborah Stevenson

We've broken the poetry into two lists: next month will be devoted to anthologies including work from multiple authors, while this month focuses on volumes of verse from individual poets. Varying in tone from the gross to the grave to the grand, these titles will be useful in any number of different circumstances and rewarding in even more.

And while we felt it would be cheating to include the Bulletin's own contributions on the list, consulting editor Betsy Hearne's Polaroid and Other Poems of View (BCCB 6/91) and Love Lines: Poetry in Person (BCCB 10/87) are evocative collections for young adults.
