About this product
- DescriptionMartial Music, George Amabile's eleventh book and newest collection of poetry, explores the relationships between civilization, techlogy, empire and human violence, theatres of war, the collateral damage of military occupation, the machinations of power politics, oil spills, destruction of the environment, ptsd, and other characteristics of what we call ?world events.? These are tough poems for tough times?our times?when the human cost of military conflict, environmental disaster and gun violence have become the daily staple of news headlines. Provocative, unflinching and at times raw with the poet's fury at unfathomable acts, Amabile's poems converge as an urgent libretto against the militaristic tendencies that surround us, inciting a march toward the creation of a more peaceful and sincere world.
