Bu the stories within these poems aren't the ones we're bound to find in the history books or encyclopedia entries. Red Shuttleworth makes brilliant use of his trademark imagery and rhythm to make these poems jump out of the page and sing. He gives us a glimpse into the lives of these famous men and women in such concise snapshots that we feel transported into that era. He's not interested in generalities. Instead his keen eye for detail brings forth the human side of these larger than life personalities to present a different side of not only the men and women but of the legend as well.
This is an important book from an important poet at the peak of his poetic genius. It proves that he belongs to be included in the same group of great contemporary American poets such as Jim Harrison, Jack Gilbert or Wendell Berry.
Five stars plus. Ordered the hard copy , not the kindle edition.
