Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The brief introduction appropriately cites Melvin B. Tolson’s Libretto for the Republic of Liberia and Langston Hughes’s Ask Your Mama as benchmark examples of the ambitious modernist experiments of African American poets at mid-century. . . . With sensitivity, intelligence, and careful work, [the editors] present a bumper crop of quite remarkable poetry!”-- Lorenzo Thomas, author of Extraordinary Measures: Afrocentric Modernism and 20th-Century American Poetry
 

Every Goodbye Ain’t Gone is unquestionably an anthology whose time has come. I can easily envision diverse audiences eager to read for pleasure, for poetic instruction and influence, for use in undergraduate and/or graduate seminars, and for a critical starting point from which literary historians and chroniclers of African American expressive culture can begin to revise the current accounting of black poetic experiment.”-- Meta DuEwa Jones, University of Texas at Austin
