From the Back Cover:

Take Jennifer Barber: "Whether she is speaking of a place, a picture, or an ordinary supper with friends, Jenny Barber's poetry is at once vivid and delicate. In a poem called 'The Storm at Sun Up' she writes: 'a skirt whirls over/the skirts of lettuces,/sensual and sheer.' With these two final adjectives, she could be describing her own work."--Linda Pastan

"Jennifer Barber's poems are sensual, attentive lyrics which move with a growing necessity and insight and surprise. I am grateful for this fine book."--Jean Valentine

Jennifer Barber is the founding editor of the literary magazine Salamander and lives in the Boston area.

Take Mark Bibbins: "'The Pathology of Proximity' haunts the corrosive sweetness of urban night in Mark Bibbins's poems--proximity of lovers and their absence, torn phrases, 'thinning ice cubes,' 'the harvest moon, bloated and sexual.' Friends die of AIDS, 'Bluebeard sharpens his axe.' No wonder the narrator remarks, "I have always felt safer in transit.' Yet Bibbins also has the courage to stop, to pin down the always irrational present moment, and the reader is eager to follow, to inhale its scathing or enticing perfume. Swerve's tire-marks announce the arrival of a brilliant young poet."--John Ashbery

Mark Bibbins is assistant to the editor of The Best American Poetry series and lives in New York City.

Take Maggie Nelson: "Maggie Nelson brings a deft and unflagging wit to her writing and her powers of invention never quit. I love the way all she says keeps moving, insistent, often abrasive, like they say, and always specific. Can it get any better? I don't think so."--Robert Creeley

"Fresh, breezy, but edgy, here are Maggie Nelson's The Scratch-Scratch Diaries, full of disconnections and witty reassemblings. Do you wonder what the 21st century will bring to the poetic voice? Look to this talented young poet's alluring combination of deftness and vulnerability."--Molly Peacock

Maggie Nelson's poems have also appeared in a collection with another poet entitled Not Sisters. She lives in New York City.

Selected by Askold Melnyczuk and the poetry panel of AGNI magazine, Take three: 3 is the third in an important annual series designed to launch the work of new poets.
