Editorial Reviews


"Nelson has produced a beautiful complement to Madrid, 1937: Letters of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade from the Spanish Civil War (1996), which he coedited. Nelson includes an excellent introductory essay, which, in its focus on the "cultural work poems can do," offers a critical perspective strikingly different from the new critical approach one finds in such works as Marilyn Rosenthal's Poetry of the Spanish Civil War. These poems represent an important poetic tradition outside of canonical US modernism, a tradition of political engagement in which history is not merely background material of the stuff of imagery and metaphor." -- G. Grieve-Carlson, in Choice, Feb. 2003 "A breathtaking collection of U.S. poetry responding to the Spanish Civil War that will surely attract international attention. Not only does Nelson bring forgotten voices back into our consciousness, but he also reaches out and demonstrates the impact on writers not normally associated with 'the last great cause.'" -- Alan Wald, author of Exiles from a Future Time: The Forging of the Mid-Twentieth-Century Literary Left
