The year's most notable anthology is 100 Queer Poems, edited by Mary Jean Chan and Andrew McMillan. It has at its core a generous and expansive definition of queerness that finds room for poets such as WH Auden, John Ashbery and Elizabeth Bishop, while including modern, innovative voices such as Verity Spott and Harry Josephine Giles. With a thematic arrangement ranging across relationships and families, the urban and natural world, and queer histories and futures, there is a great sense of kinship running through the poems -- The Best Poetry Books of 2022 * Guardian *
A diverse and gratifying new anthology of LGBTQ+ verse... this is an abundantly rich and rewarding collection, capturing how queer poets and their work speak to one another across generations * attitude *
100 Queer Poems is more than a landmark volume; it offers a golden opportunity for readers and writers to check in, refresh, reconnect. Old favourites sit alongside emerging stars and some surprises, gifting us with an anthology that marks the present moment and ushers in a new one -- OKECHUKWU NZELU, author of Here Again Now
