Later Poems Selected and New: 1971–2012 by Adrienne Rich

Published posthumously, this collection of Adrienne Rich’s poetry reaches back to some of the early poems that marked Rich not only as a poet of undeniable talent, but also a poet who would take her voice into the realms of politics and activism, filling in some of the voids around silence and secrecy. At her death in March 2012, Rich left behind a manuscript of work that speaks for her concern with a poetics of relation, the importance of the craft, and a mirror of the nuances of the world in which we live. With 10 new poems added to her older ones, this collection embodies Rich’s tenacity and her ability to reach toward and examine that which affects our days.

The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton, 1965–2010

Like all great poets, Lucille Clifton made what is intensely personal universal, and what is widely felt a visceral experience. Her poems do not shy away from that which is painful, but move into it and illuminate it with humor, intelligence, and the wonder of language. To finally have a full collection of her work is an opportunity not to be missed. We can proudly call her a local poet: She taught at UCSC!

The Poems of Octavio Paz edited & translated by Eliot Weinberger

“I am a man: little do I last / and the night is enormous” begins my favorite Paz poem. I think his work has lasted far longer than he could have envisioned. He has the ability to move seamlessly from the political to the personal, the familiar to the fantastical; and here is the full of span of his career as a poet, from his first published poem to his last. A must have!

A Thousand Mornings by Mary Oliver

According to Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Mary Oliver, it is every poet’s duty to “cultivate their sense of wonder in life.” That is, after all, what her work always does. From a blade of grass to the wide cycle of life, her keen eye on the world ever leaves a reader uplifted, curious, and gazing with wider eyes.
