Beginning with David Lehman's learned but reader-friendly Introduction, the book provides an overview of the form, which nicely prepared me to understand or, at least, better appreciate the prose poems I was about to read. As it turned out though, the poetry selected for this anthology are highly accessible on their own.
I've since read more collections and explanations of prose poetry, some of which I'll comment on and recommend in subsequent reviews for Amazon. This edition, however, is my top choice for a prose poem anthology and will be most likely to get dog-eared as I re-read the lively poems again and again.
