Brian Henry

Graft

In his citation for the 2001 George Bogin Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, which Brian Henry won with this collection, Donald Revell writes: "I honor and admire these poems for their groundwork understanding.

The Street of Clocks

Thomas Lux

The Street of Clocks

The poems in this collection are lyrical monologues, urgently delivered by a narrator who both loves the world and has intense quarrels with it. Often set against a vivid landscape - the rural America of Lux's childhood and unidentified places south of the border - these poems speak from rivers and swamps, deserts and lawns, jungles and the depths of the sea.

Michael S. Harper

Selected Poems

Concerned with the often painful historical legacies of family and race, Harper re-visits personal and black history in these poems, in which we not only hear the driving syncopations and heady improvisations of Coltrane, Charlie Parker and Miles Davis but also the cadences of those towering literary figures - among them Yeats and Keats - that have so much influenced him.
