Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

20 poemsTitle to be discussed: Twenty poems that could save America and other essays by Tony Hoagland.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, April 12, 6:30 pm. From back cover: "With their characteristic verve and clarity, Tony Hoagland's essays always unravel fresh dimensions of the craft of poetry.  In this new collection, they also press for a serious conversation about the role of poetry in contemporary culture.  Essays on the 'vertigo' aesthetics of new poetry stand beside appraisals of Robert Bly, Sharon Olds, and Dean Young.  At the heart of this book is an honesty and curiosity about the ways poetry can influence American imagination at both the private and public levels.  Already one of the country's most provocative poets, Hoagland with this collection confirms his role as a restless and perceptive literary and cultural critic."
