Recommended by Rich Smith

Alice Notley is a legendary second-generation so-called New York School poet who writes conversational and yet intensely lyric poems that will last forever, such as this one: "All my life, / since I was ten, / I've been waiting / to be in / this hell here / with you; / all I've ever / wanted, and / still do." She's best known for At Night the States, a meditation on grief following the death of her husband, the great poet Ted Berrigan. No one knows how to talk about that book adequately because after you read it, you feel like you don't have a mouth. RICH SMITH
