Everett Hoagland is a poet of witness. Esteemed by the African-American community for blending language with musical form through sound, image, and rhythm, his poetry is a passionate examination of history, which allows us to neither look away nor forget."every Fourth of JulyI want some country, some-one to send a replica of one of allthose slave ships over the Middle Passage to the tall ship parade-To keep it honest, to make it real, to see"First published by the historic Broadside Press, Hoagland now offers us thirty years of his best published poems plus a collection of stunning new work. The temperature of these poems is high, sometimes radiantly warm and loving, sometimes scalding with a sense of justice and injustice. But Hoagland's range is wide. He digs for the poetry in his subjects, never resting in rhetoric but passing through it into something finer and deeper. He writes about Africa; about friendship and fatherhood; about New England, his adopted home; about historical figures who live in his mind and his blood. From Sally Hemings to Winnie Mandela to Amiri Baraka; from his daughter's birth to the outrage of clitoridectomy, Hoagland's heart, his intelligence and his power of language interact in this honest and sometimes lacerating collection.Marketing Plans: Advertising in key literary and trade magazines Publicity Mailings Readings in New England and New YorkEverett Hoagland has won the Gwendolyn Brooks Award and two Massachusetts Poetry Fellowships. Beacon Press will be publishing his new anthology on African-American writing. His poems have appeared "in APR, Iowa Review, Essence" and "The Progressive." Originally from Philadelphia, he reads widely around the country, teaches at the University of Massachusetts (Dartmouth), is a contributing editor to "APR," and the former Poet Laureate of New Bedford, where he makes his home.

Could not let the book down Sure not a literary master piece, but as one of the reviewers stated, it will keep you turning the pages.
