Synopsis: Edited and introduced by Sam Hamill, and with a complete bibliography of poetry published by the Press, The Gift of Tongues is drawn from more than 150 books and chapbooks and collects nearly 300 poems by some of the most distinguished poets and translators of the last quarter-century.

"Copper Canyon Press is an evangelist for poetry. It has always made books that are aesthetically pleasing, and this anthology is no exception. The rich diversity of poets inside from John Balaban to Tom McGrath, Carolyn Kizer to Eleanor Wilner, celebrates 25 years of sagacious and daring publishing."-Maxine Kumi

Review: In Sam Hamill's introduction to this anthology of inspired writing from Copper Canyon Press, we get a sense of the drive and the passion it has taken to open this space for poetry. Maxine Kumin calls the collection "sagacious and daring." Philip Levine writes that without presses like Copper Canyon, "most of the very best [writing] would never have found its audience." Including work from W.S. Merwin, Gary Snyder, Carolyn Kizer, Lucille Clifton, and Pablo Neruda, among others, The Gift of Tongues is among the finest books of poetry published in the 1990s.
