"The American Poetry Review began a revolution in poetry comparable only to that begun by Harriet Monroe's Poetry in 1912. Sharing the vision of Walt Whitman, it has brought the spirit of excellence and democracy to poetry, through the directness of a tabloid newspaper, to the largest poetry audience ever gathered in America."
