Item description for Forget Reading by Anthony Hawley...
In Forget Reading, Anthony Hawley's second collection, poems speak up despite themselves, and in doing so they af?rm poetry's slight, subterranean power inside a culture of overwhelming and decadent ugliness. Due to the very odds stacked against them, these beautifully moving poems enact a radical little protest, unheeded by the majority rule.
