Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Blue Notes" is useful for readers needing basic information about Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa. The volume is divided into four distinct sections. One may read essays by Komunyakaa(on Etheridge Knight, Robert Hayden, and jazz musicians), commentaries he has written in response to his own work, and works that were in process as "Blue Notes" was published. In addition, the inclusion of old interviews with Komunyakaa gives readers a view of the arc of YK's aesthetic development, as well as insights into his views on the subjects of his work. The book fills a need.
