14 International Younger Poets, edited and with an introduction by Philip Nikolayev, features verse by brilliant poets aged under 35 from India and the United States, with two of the participants originally hailing from Eastern Europe. These remarkable young men and women, who first met each other in a virtual poetry recital, have quickly formed an active poetic community held together by aesthetic affinities, like values, and camaraderie. Their styles and ideas exhibit a crosspollinating diversity, and their spirit is indomitably humanist. The poets question both themselves and the world, constantly negotiating their human, moral, and literary standing in it. Welcome to fourteen captivating quests for poetic excellence!
