One of the most interesting things to watch as [David] Lehman's forewords fare forward thought a quarter of a century is the increasing recognition of the Internet as a valid site for publication. The first full acknowledgment of this reality is in his foreword to the 2009 anthology, in which he states,"The Internet has multiplied the number of places in which a poem may appear." Following that is the announcement that in 2008, Best American Poetry launched its own blog. And that blog, I have to say, has become one of the liveliest expressions of the originating principle of the anthology. It is a daily sign, dispatched by David Lehman and the host of bloggers he has invited to join him, that poetry in all its forms is alive."
