Required reading from great poets of our time. Drew Barrymore: ÒUpon Pondering Breasts.Ó Tom Cruise: ÒAn Exegesis on Psychiatry.Ó Ann Coulter: ÒMy Kind of Fun.Ó And Trump and Sheen and Snooki, John Boehner and Michelle Bachman, Miley and Ke$ha. Hugo Chavez. Even a Zen haiku by Emmitt Smith: I think itÕs his self- confidence in himself that makes him confident. With their great gift for curating the inane public utterances of celebrities, politicians, and other self-important loudmouths, Kathryn and Ross Petras offer a timeless collection of ÒfoundÓ poetryÑreal quotes formatted as verse for hilarious and surprising effect. The quotes are inherently addictive and funnyÑbut turning them into verse intensifies the effect, making the words even more ridiculous, parodies to revel in. And the Petrases take it one step further: organizing the poems by themes, introducing each work with a Norton Anthology mock seriousness, discussing Òschools,Ó and larding the text with footnotes, The Anthology of Really Important Modern Poetry is pure deadpan pleasure. A whiff of Emily Dickinson in Ann Coulter? ItÕs literary treasure, right under our noses.
