About this product
- DescriptionMartha Collins patches together an arresting and sometimes conflicting array of evidence - newspaper articles, census data, legal history, her father's own eyewitness account - to describe the brutal, frenzied lynching of two men: one of them black, one white and both left to the merciless violence of the spectators. The resulting work, fragmented and hallucinatory, is a bold and honest investigation into hate, mob mentality, culpability and what it means to be white in a country still haunted by its grimly racist history.
- Author BiographyMartha Collins is the author of four previous poetry collections, including Some Things Words Can Do, and co-translator of two volumes of poetry from the Vietnamese. She teaches at Oberlin College and lives in Oberlin, Ohio, and Cambridge, Massachusetts.
