LONG & SHORT: Including THE STREET IN YOUR HEAD
This collection of new and selected poems by Angelo Verga, the quintessential poet’s poet, is like nothing you’ve read or heard before. Contained are both long and short poems that work the same themes from multiple and closely crafted angles–all in a diction and attitude that is American, current, and urban.
From religion to sex; from domesticity to conflict; from real workers to economic vampires; from literary commentary to actual life lived on the street, Verga’s seventh book is essential reading for those who want to discover what contemporary American poetry can do in the hands of a master.
