The larger point I’m interested in is the question of the book of poems, as opposed to the poetry book. I’m interested in this question because it comes up a lot in my conversations with poets — especially younger poets — about the book publishing market. I am not arguing against “poetry books” that seem all of a piece in one way or another. Nor am I advocating for “books of poems,” which would be more like miscellanies.
