In almost every... more...

A Sense of Regard , says Laura McCullough, “is an effort to collect the voices of living poets and scholars in thoughtful and considered exfoliation of the current confluence of poetry and race, the difficulties, the nuances, the unexamined, the feared, the questions, and the quarrels across aesthetic camps and biases.”.

Marsh Boy and other Poems is a welcome contribution to the tradition of poetry devoted to the revolutionary struggles of the people of the oil-rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria.

From Sylvia Plath?s depictions of the Holocaust as a group of noncohering ?bits? to AIDS elegies? assertions that the dead posthumously persist in ghostly form and Susan Howe?s insistence that the past can be conveyed only through juxtaposed ?scraps,? the condition of being too late is one that haunts post-World War II American poetry.
