George Bowering has curated a collection of poems to be read in the morning, Good Morning Poems: a start to the day from famous English-language poets (NeWest $20.95) that lays bare his process as a reader and lover of poetry. The poems cover a period of five hundred years of English language literature adding historical, political, feminist, socio-economic, anecdotal and literary context to each poem and poet. His selection ranges from the best known to the barely known, each piece treated with depth and reverence, while demonstrating Bowering’s wit and skill as writer, critic and reader.
