Editorial Reviews

Review

"Studiously compiled. . . . [The] fundamental conjunction of alternative cultures and social movements is at the heart of the Baraka-Dorn correspondence."
--Boston Review



"The friendship that emerges in these letters follows the pattern of the exchange itself. Defined by its intensity, it is in turns trusting and antagonistic: reading it through in its entirety, we hear two major poets at the germinal moment of their careers hammering out the ideas that define their art. . . . The letters have been intelligently edited by Claudia Moreno Pisano: her annotations are assiduously judged and enlightening."
--PN Review



"A narrative assemblage with artfully selected materials whose backdrop never overshadows the shifting tones contained within the correspondence between poets Ed Dorn and Amiri Baraka."
--Rain Taxi



"The two writers [Amiri Baraka and Edward Dorn] could not have hoped for a better editor than Claudia Moreno Pisano, whose notes clarify every obscurity and shed light on shadowy in-jokes."
--Times Literary Supplement



"The collection provides a fascinating look not only into the lives of these two poets but also into a turbulent time in American culture that is both very different from and sadly very similar to our own."
--Christianity Today
