Selected Poems includes ample offerings from A. Poulin, Jr.'s eight books, now out of print. Known for his imagination and deft intelligence, Poulin's poems balance philosophical inquiry with emotional intensity, calling us to a spiritual awakening beyond that of traditional religion. Edited by Michael Waters with a preface by prize-winning poet Gerald Stern, the release of the book coincides with the 25th anniversary of BOA Editions, founded by Poulin in 1976.

Poet, translator and publisher A. Poulin, Jr. was the contributing editor of Contemporary American Poetry, published by Houghton Mifflin. The founder of BOA Editions, Poulin died in 1996.
