The 10 Best Poetry Collections Of The Decade
It’s official, friends: The end of this decade is near. It has been a tough, anxious-provoking, and morally compromised decade. But, at least there’s some really good literature. Our silver linings will be taken wherever we can.
So, as is our hallowed duty as a literary and culture website though with full awareness of the potentially fruitless and endlessly contestable nature of the task in the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a look at the best and most important (these being not always the same) books of the decade that was. This will be done using a range of lists. Our series began with the 10 best novel debuts and short story collections of the decade. We now have the third list, the Best Poetry Collections published in English between 2010 – 2019.
The Literary Hub staff voted several times and after much discussion, these books were finally chosen. It was a time of tears and hurt feelings. There were even a few books re-read. As you will see, it was difficult to choose ten. We have included both a list with dissenting views and a longer list of also-rans.
While I’ll admit that it was one of the toughest lists we made, poetry can be very subjective. Truly consensus was hard to achieve (exception being Claudia Rankine, who was voted on by almost all office members). We excluded large “collected poetry” to increase the range. We’d love to hear about your favorite favorites, so please leave a comment below.
