Resistance, Rebellion, Life, Amit Majmudar Paperback. Poets on the march: 50 crucial poems written in response to the current political climate, selected and introduced by the Ohio Poet Laureate?and son of immigrants?Amit Majmudar.


In a political atmosphere where language and even meaning itself are continually under threat, poetry has a critical role to play. And our poets have been responding?in the streets and at their desks, demanding a full accounting from themselves and from their nation. Majmudar's elegant introduction to these vital poems reminds us that "false stories take a lot of killing because they are made of language. Because they are made of language, though, they can be killed." From Solmaz Sharif and Eileen Myles to Kevin Young and Juan Felipe Herrera, American poets of diverse styles and strategies have contributed their truths: scenes from the front lines of resistance, and from the interior of our collective conscience. A final cento by Majmudar?a poem including at least one line or phrase from each of the poems in the volume?elebrates the robust multiplicity of voices in this book and in America now.
