"Though there are many annuals of poetry, Zoland Books produces one of thebest. A wide range of poets and styles are presented here without anyoverbearing dogma or preference for a certain kind of poem. The criterion ismerely excellence, detected by the keen eye of Roland Pease." – The Bloomsbury Review
“The third Zoland Poetry is full of delight, drama and surprise–it contains a tango for the jealous; a bored genie; Padgett’s imagination; ways to take an airplane apart; Goldbarth’s verve; and international voices from China, Vietnam, Wales and more. By turns serious and playful, and then always seriously at play, this annual anthology rounds up the unusual suspects in contemporary poetry and represents them with all their energy and wit.” –John Skoyles
“Far too much provocative thought flies under the radar of English-language readers; here’s a new radar station, registering worldwide movement.” –ForeWord Magazine
“. . . somewhere between highly recommended and essential . . . Zoland Poetry is a reminder of the sudden force that poetry can affect . . .”–American Book Review
