Editorial Reviews


"Hummer's originality resides in a penchant for starting juxtapositions--not only at the level of language, but also in his conception of a poem's dramatic situation."

About the Author

T. R. Hummer is the author of eight books of poetry, including Useless Virtues, a finalist for the Phi Beta Kappa Poetry Award, and Walt Whitman in Hell. He is a recipient of the Richard Wright Literary Excellence Award. A native of Mississippi and a longtime devotee and practitioner of jazz, he lives in Athens, Georgia, where he is editor of the Georgia Review and a professor of creative writing at the University of Georgia.

By A Reader on December 5, 2005
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hummer is one of my favorite poets, and this book is distinct and powerful. It's a suite of poems, based on jazz and blues musicians, but it also tells the cultural history of the country--especially from the 40s through the 70s--through the lives of those musicians, who were tortured, sometimes, troubled, but also visionary. The section "about" Sun Ra is especially powerful. Are you sick of smartaleck poetry, or unreadable oblique verse, or unpeopled deconstructions of, well, whatever? Me too. Read Hummer. He's the real thing.
