New poetry

We have two new collections by American poets.  The Back Chamber is the latest collection from Donald Hall, the former poet laureate and winner of the Frost Medal from the Poetry Society of America.  Devin Johnston, former editor of the Chicago Review, is a younger poet who looks to Yeats as one of his major influences.  His new collection is called Traveler, and it uses words like musical notes.  These two poets have very different styles, and both books are worth checking out.
