Item description for Against Which (New Voices) by Ross Gay...

An exploration of the various ways language can help us transcend both the banal and unusual cruelties which are inevitably delivered to us, and which we equally deliver unto others. These poems comb through violence and love, fear and loss, exploring the common denominators in each. Against Which seeks the ways human beings might transform themselves from participants in a thoughtless and brutal world to laborers in a loving one.

Reviews - What do customers think about Against Which (New Voices)?

Powerful poetry  Jun 16, 2007
Ross Gay's Against Which is a testimony to life well observed. You'll hear the poet fall in love again and again--with the land, with his father, with the quirkiness of humans. You'll hear hate rise, temper flare, passion burn. The most powerful poems I've read in years.
 
His is a poetry that slams the attention of the reader with considerable force wrought with linguistic eloquence.  Feb 3, 2007
The newest addition to the CavanKerry Press 'New Poetry' series, "Against Which" showcases the poetic talent and highly original voice of Ross Gay as he explores such painful issues as physical brutality, carnality, violent loss, the transcendence of death, and grim aspects of human experience. His is a poetry that slams the attention of the reader with considerable force wrought with linguistic eloquence. The result is verse that lingers in the mind as such thoughtful and thought-provokingly illustrated images inevitably will. 'Leaving New Orleans': I'm leaving a city where the living and dead mix,/ when the dank summer air's reek is more ghost/than any town needs. The plane knifing through/night. I met someone here whose eyes drip/with the scars of some slaughter, the echo/whispering. There's a pain you can't even begin/to know. And 33,000 feet down, a human galaxy's/mute burn.
