Review

...I find that these coupled vignettes are leading me on to more reading about Lincoln; they are teasers to force us to do so. This is a fine book, well crafter, well produced, and complete in itself, but it also has a value to drive one further into investigating this man who, in my travels abroad, I have found is better known than any other American... A final work on the last three poems, Contents of My Pockets, April 14, 1865 ; Bullet in My Brain, April 15, 1865 ; and Alternate Ending : These are a tour de force. I have never felt Lincoln s death more keenly than in reading this trio, after the cumulative effect of the whole book. They are unforgettable. --Jacqueline Jackson Book & Poetry Ed., Illinois Times

Format: Paperback
I was lucky enough to attend a program at my local library where Illinois civil war era writer, Dan Guillory, was to speak on Lincoln in the Civil War. In his speech he read a few poems from this book. I learned alot about Lincoln and the Civil War but I was fascinated by the poems. After the lecture I thumbed through the book and knew that it was one I wanted in my collection. So, I bought it.
Dan Guillory introduces each poem with a small story about the place or time of the poem. To give you glance into the poem and its relationship to Lincoln. This book not only deals with the man as President but also as the man as an Illinoisian. You see many different sides to Lincoln. Through this book I learned a few things that i had not previously known about Lincoln, like his digestive problems. This is a good book that gives great insight into Lincoln the President and the man.

Format: Paperback
A magnificent collection that pays tribute to Lincoln's quintessence as not only statesman and politician but also poet--each of the poems is introduced with a vignette, and with his own eloquent writing, Guillory has captured the exquisite essence of a man rough-hewn.
