Review of "99 Poems for the 99 Percent: An Anthology of Poetry" edited by Dean RaderHorse Less Press (2013)
Edited by Dean Rader, this collection developed out of his blog with the same name. The 99 poems are all by different poets. The book includes not just their bios but also the poet’s commentary on their poem. These insights help to put the poems in context, both in relation to the Occupy movement and how poets find and write poems in their daily lives. The publisher, 99: The Press, generally releases books where the main text is 99 pages long. Here the 99 represents the number of poems and poets in the anthology and at the same time names the 99 percent catch phrase of the Occupy movement.
