Time You Let Me In: 25 Poets Under 25, selected by Naomi Shihab Nye, is a wonderful collection of unique, distinctive poetry. The book is organized by poet, and each of the 25 (actually 26) poets have written four poems. The back of the book, under Notes on the Contributors, has a little hilarious blurb on each poet, making this collection even more human-feeling than the poems alone have made it. I loved this book; I thought this collection was wonderfully chosen, and all of these poems were beautiful and incredibly written. Sometimes reading a good poem hits something in you so suddenly, you don’t even know what got hit, and that’s what happened to me with many of these poems. As a person under 25, I thought they captured the feelings and thoughts and moments of young people very well. These poems are so raw and true that you can almost feel the experiences and lives behind them. My favourites were Mackenzie Connellee’s “suggestion” and Emma Shaw Crane’s “poem for my name”.
