Format: Paperback
For anyone looking for an anthology of persona poetry, this book can't be beat. The editors have collected a range of work that showcases the endless and inspiring possibilities of the persona poem. The Hulk expresses his difficulty using the photo copier, a brilliant cento featuring famous (or should I say infamous) lines from George W. Bush's public speeches, a beautiful piece by Sally Ball, a poem from the perspective of the wife of a man who ribs graves, Dorothy, after Oz -- for teaching purposes this text has something that will excite every student, and is sure to spark lively conversation. A great text to have in any collection!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent anthology of persona poetry. The editors have chosen work that explore the vast human condition of times past and contemporary poetry- in the many masks we wear to cope with our inadequacies. A Face to Meet the Faces is named after the T.S Eliot's infamous The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.
