Description: Billy Collins is an American phenomenon. No poet since Robert Frost has managed to combine high critical acclaim with such broad popular appeal. He is a Guggenheim fellow; his work appears in The New Yorker and The Paris Review. At the same time, his last three collections of poems have broken sales records for poetry.

The poems themselves best explain his success. The Collins poem typically opens on a clear and hospitable note but soon takes an unexpected turn; poems that begin in irony may end in moments of lyric surprise. Take the beginning of "Fishing on the Susquehanna in July" and you will understand why Collins sees his poetry as "a form of travel writing" and considers humor "a door into the serious":
