About this product
- DescriptionPoems as cool as they are passionate, as soft-spoken as they are indignant, and as fiercely Romantic as they are formally contained. . . . An exquisite collection -Marjorie Perloff With musical grace critics have likened to that of Robert Creeley, Elizabeth Bishop, and William Carlos Williams, Joseph Lease mixes a storyteller's rhythm with lyric beauty to create a collection filled with humor, political bite, and psychological intensity. In a country where money has won everywhere, but the essential promise of democracy still beckons, these poems uncover our troubled psyches and show us what it might mean to be Free Again.
- Author BiographyLease's poetry has been featured on NPR and published in The AGNI 30th Anniversary Poetry Anthology, VQR, Bay Poetics, Paris Review, and elsewhere.
