English professor David Rivard’s poem “The Reverend Larry Love Is Dead” from “The Best American Poetry 2007” has been chosen for inclusion in “The Best of the Best American Poetry: 1988–2012,” which Scribner will publish in 2013 to celebrate the 25 years of the series. Of the more than 2,000 poems that have appeared in “The Best American Poetry” since the inaugural volume in 1988 (including the poems forthcoming in the 2012 edition), only 100 made the final cut.
