I have read many volumes of poetry, but none has taken my hand so firmly and pulled me as forcefully from page to page until I am unexpectedly staring at the back cover. From ferocious to lusty to simply beautiful, no poet has taught me more through their words than Mr. Knight.

I have never been a fan of poetry because it always seemed so convoluted and trite to me, but Ethridge Knight knows how to sing to you, plead with you, and tell you how it is. Beautiful and honest.

This is the most amazing collection of poetry I have ever read. From Hard Rock, to and your eyes... incredible depth, honesty, range and vision. He is one of the most overlooked poets of last century.

Etheridge Knight is a poetic master. His words are beautifully tied together and thought evoking. I would highly recomend this title to any beginning poet or reader. Beautiful poetry.
