“The ‘publishable’ American poem seems to have skipped over a certain amount of honesty, boldness, and activism in the name of “craft.” An identity repair poem is one that acknowledges that many of the tools in the “taught toolbox” need cultural improving.” Thomas Sayers Ellis
Invite your students, invite yourselves to a powerful and significant reading, performance, and cultural shakedown this Wed. the 14th, 7:30 in Wiegand Gallery. Book signing, reception to follow.
“In an edgy, urgent explosion of verse blended effectively with Ellis’s own photographs, Ellis challenges the very concept of literary culture—and of post racial society.”—Library Journal
“No doubt, this is a major book.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Skin, Inc.: Identity Repair Poems is a bristlingly clever, obnoxious, didactic, and passionately sincere book. . . . There are many ways to approach the topic of American race (most poets choose by simply ignoring it) but Ellis is at once the most confrontationally bitter and the most idealistic poet of several decades. “—Tony Hoagland, American Poetry Review
