Review:

Spirit & Flame celebrates the experience of the African American poet. Comprising more than two hundred pieces, Spirit & Flame delivers the artistic and political fervor of new and established black voices around the country in the oral tradition, in tanka and sonnets, in lyrics that echo the sound of jazz (as well as hip hop and rap). Keith Gilyard's compilation of the best and the brightest black poets demonstrates that the African American scene is vibrant and diverse, at times unidentifiably ethnic and strongly political. These poems span the entire range of the African American experience, from the Middle Passage to the Million Man March. They are written with elegance, terror, humor,and grace. Spirit & Flame is highly recommended for poetry class reading lists, for black studies, and for anyone who appreciates the power and artistry of the poetic voice. -- Midwest Book Review
