The 10 Best Poetry Books
We spent 20 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. Poetry is an art as old as language, as human beings have shared their myths and origin stories in rhyming verse since long before the development of the written word. The poetry books on our list represent some of the finest written expressions of humanity, and include diverse compilations, collections by iconic poets of the 20th century, and fine works by contemporary writers. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best poetry book on Amazon.
