Poetry. African American Studies. "Nothing changes until it's changed in everyone's memories. Earl S. Braggs remembers and records his experience, protesting America's attempt to make him smaller than these large, vivid, Kerouacian, music-saturated poems. The reader is returned, through repetition's felicities--the epic extension of the moment of composition--inward to our national soul"--Alice Notley.
