All that's best of dark and bright: Upcoming poetry from FSG

In the spirit of National Poetry Month, we wanted to share some of our upcoming poetry titles from FSG:

First up: two major bilingual anthologies of twentieth-century poetry: The FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Italian Poetry and The FSG Book of Twentieth-Century Latin American Poetry:

I have been mailing out copies of these beauties all morning and feel like some sort of giddy springtime Santa.

Che bei colori!

Or if, like Larkin, you believe that "...sun destroys / The interest of what's happening in the shade", there's Larkin's new Complete Poems, or Bye-and-Bye: Selected Late Poems by Charles Wright (paperback). In June, look forward to the moonlit Unseen Hand: Poems by Adam Zagajewski (paperback).
