"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
—Patricia Willis, Rosenbach Museum & Library
