Editorial Reviews

Review

“There was something more to be said that only poetry could say. It is eloquently said here."
Publishers Weekly

"After last year's tragic attack on the World Trade Center, Americans turned to poetry both to find expressions for their grief and to assuage it. Not surprisingly, poets themselves turned to the blank page (or computer screen) to sum up the nation's sense of loss. Some of the best efforts are captured in this fine anthology....An excellent addition to most collections."
Library Journal

"An impressive roster of poets...."
Newsday

"Noteworthy for the high quality of its poems...."
Chicago Tribune

"...an acknowledgement of [poetry's] ability to express the unfathomable."
Seattle Times

"....an intriguing alternative to the many where-were-you accounts of the day that are flooding stores."
Rocky Mountain News

"[The] poems in the book distill emotions, add to our record of images both real and imagined."
Orlando Sentinel

Very moving. I read this for a graduate poetry workshop class as we studied post 9/11 literature. Beautiful and sobering. I would highly recommend this book to anyone studying traumatic influences on a culture as they are exhibited through the arts.
