Misrepresented people : poetic responses to Trump's America / edited by Maria Isabel Alvarez & Dante Di Stefano
- The poets anthologized in Misrepresented People: Poetic Responses To Trump's America bear witness to, rage against, and defy the misogyny, racism, homophobia, xenophobia, and authoritarian impulses that have always surrounded us, but that are incarnated in the 45th president. At a time when large swaths of the nation, and of the world, have succumbed to a reality television ontology, the poems collected in this volume offer the terra firma of imaginative empathy only available to us through poetry. This anthology contains work from a variety of aesthetic stances, from poets whose personal backgrounds reflect the vibrant multiplicity of our democratic vistas at their most resplendent. These voices counter alternative facts and fake news with the earned communion and the restorative utterance of the lyric and of the narrative. NYQ Books will donate proceeds from this anthology to The National Immigration Law Center.
