In addition to his magisterial poetry, Robert Hass is beloved for his incisive, meditative criticism. A Little Book on Form takes up the central contradiction between poetry as genre and the poetics of the imagination.  Douglas Manuel's brave, brilliant debut, Testify, is about the African-American experience in the American Midwest.  Brimming with natural history and bright flashes of language, the poems in Charles Hood's Partially Excited States take us from Paleolithic caves to modern movie theaters, and along the way we fix time machines with Tom Hanks, enter a Rousseau painting, and collect diamonds from the moons of Neptune.
