Praise for The Rage and Bone Shop of the Heart
A splendid, robust collection of world poetry from Hesiod and Heraclitus to the present...The editors, leaders of the men's movement, have used these poems in weekend retreats; they stress the old traditions of spoken poetry. The collection is organized into 16 sections dealing with men's issues such as war, love, fatherhood, communication and denial .

The stories in this book--though emerging from the editors' men's work--can be equally important to women. The book works well for those new to and unfamiliar with poetry and for experienced readers. These poems are lively, rather than dull; the editors help us by putting them into a useful context .
[The editors'] collaboration resulted in a book with a remarkable group of poets across the ages, from Emily Dickinson to Charles Bukowski, from Catullus to Bob Dylan...These are poems focusing on concerns of the heart--fathers and sons, love and hurt, peace and war, anger, denial and zaniness .
