SKU MIX31-U31-32A-RES-58423


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

*Starred Review* Trust Rich, a clarion poet of conscience, to get the fractured timbre of the times just right in a collection of vigorous lyric poems about the first four years of the twenty-first century, a period of terror, war, corporate imperialism, outrageous lies, and miasmal inarticulateness. A moment in history, Rich avers, in arresting imagery and flinty syntax, in which language has been processed into banality just like so much of the American landscape. Forthright, precise, witty, and keenly attuned to complacency, reluctance, and fear, Rich fights back with exhilaratingly choreographed poems about inane, high-pitched public cell-phone conversations, television's numbing soundtrack, the crude oversimplification and commercialization of public discourse, and the viral / spread of social impotence producing social silence. Rich also writes piercingly, and inevitably, of war, most poignantly in the powerful title poem, in which a courageous teacher in a besieged city tells his students, Don't let your faces turn to stone / Don't stop asking me why. Similarly, Rich tells readers not to give up hope and not to remain silent, because truth flows unabated behind the facade of spin and babble, and it will prevail. Donna SeamanCopyright American Library Association. All rights reserved--This text refers to the Hardcoveredition. San Francisco WeeklyWhether lamenting...modern culture or...the war on terror, Rich remains a poet of impeccable principle and unwavering conscience.
