Favorite Poetry Collections of 2021

Largehearted Boy's Favorite Poetry Collections of 2021


In a year defined by pandemic, anxiety, and uneasiness, I often looked to poetry to ground and inspire me.

These are the poetry collections I have most recommended to friends, family, and anyone else who has crossed my path this year (my personal metric for "favorite").


Little God by Avni Vyas

Little God by Avni Vyas

Avni Vyas's debut poetry collection Little God is as thought-provoking as it is whimsical.


Blooming Fiascoes by Ellen Hagan

Ellen Hagan's poetry collection Blooming Fiascoes is a vital and vibrant examination of womanhood of all ages.


Now We're Getting Somewhere by Kim Addonizio

Kim Addonizio's poetry collection Now We're Getting Somewhere manages to bridge the personal and universal with precise humor and observation.


More Anon by Maureen N. McLane

Maureen N. McLane's poetry collection More Anon sharply declares her intellect and wit.


Hardcore by Mik Grantham

Hardcore by Mik Grantham

Mik Grantham's new poetry collection Hardcore is breathtaking in its observance of life's minutiae while linking these seemingly small moments to greater truths.


Oh You Robot Saints! by Rebecca Morgan Frank

Oh You Robot Saints! by Rebecca Morgan Frank

Rebecca Morgan Frank's poetry collection Oh You Robot Saints! is a brilliant exploration of the automata we create with our hands and minds.
