Item description for Somebody Stand Up and Sing (New Issues Poetry) by Hugh Seidman...

Winner of the 2004 Green Rose Prize

"Hugh Seidman's flexible, deft prosody, and his wry, bittersweet address to the sad, foolish predicaments of contemporary American life, are proof, yet again, of his importance. In an age of what Henry James called 'tremendous trash,' his work fairly shines with authenticity and integrity." ---Gilbert Sorrentino

Reviews - What do customers think about Somebody Stand Up and Sing (New Issues Poetry)?

Hugh Seidman's poetry is rich with scientific understanding and a knowledge of the sweep of history and the cosmos. He is more deserving of recognition than many poets of our time who have received more. His is a quiet and sparse voice, not redundant with words, but musical with economic expression, sometimes elliptical, but always ultimately accessible when one follows his intelligence to where it leads us on "the other side of the poem." He takes us to where mystery exists in reality. There is nothing soft-headed or occult herein, but the blunt reality of our lives as we seem like aliens trapped on earth and ruling it, often poorly, with greed, obsession, and fallacy. Seidman is worth reading, and his work will make you want to be that somebody who stands up and sings. This is a poet of truth and conscience, who thinks deeply and sings intelligently, one with whom we can share our wounded and struggling humanity.

Daniela Gioseffi, Retired Professor of Literature,(aka Dorothy Josephs) Poet/ American Book Award Winning Author of WOMEN ON WAR: INTERNATIONAL WRITINGS and ON PREJUDICE: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, plus five volumes of poetry. Winner of two grant awards in poetry from The New York State Council for the Arts. Member PEN & NBCC.
