Hungry for some poetry? Poet Kevin Young has compiled a feast of 150 poems by some of our most beloved poets for his latest anthology, The Hungry Ear:Poems of Food & Drink (Bloomsbury, $25.00). Whether considering breaking bread or picking blackberries, “dinner for two” or “beer for breakfast,” these poems describe food not just as a necessity, but as a necessary, elementary pleasure. Poets include Elizabeth Bishop, Bill Collins, Mark Doty, Allen Ginsberg, Seamus Heaney, Tony Hoagland, Langston Hughes, Li-Young Lee and many more. Young is the author of seven books of poetry, most recently Ardency and Dear Darkness. His collection For the Confederate Dead won the Paterson Poetry Prize for Sustained Literary Achievement, and Jelly Roll was a finalist for the National Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
