Why focus an anthology of poems on the male experience when, for centuries, men have pretty much dominated everything from politics to the literary canon? Hasn't everything that can be said about the male experience already been said? This collection proves that the answer is a resounding no. Each of the anthology's ninety-three poems spotlights an individual experience that nonetheless becomes universal. Together poems from ninety-three poets - twenty-six of them female - take on self-doubt, fatherhood, sex, death, relationships, work, war, peace, and a diversity of other topics to form a perceptive and insightful collection. ""The idea isn't so much that the poems celebrate men as that they challenge the reader to discover for him or herself what is male about the poem,"" says Billy Collins about the collection. Humorous, sad, celebratory, and thoughtful, ""Manthology"" gathers a surprising group of poems focused on the almost poignant intensity of the male experience, with its attendant urgencies, confusions, and hilarities.
