Despite these political limitations, Hoagland's book on craft is one of the best that I've read in a long time
Only 16 left in stock (more on the way). erudite comic poems are backloaded with heartache and longing, and they function, emotionally, like improvised explosive devices. This plain, unincorporated, free-range American poet is one you'll want to know about. -Dwight Garner, "The New York Times". Despite these political limitations, Hoagland's book on craft is one of the best that I've read in a long time. This book should be on the reading lists for MFA programs shortly.

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 seeFirst 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.
