Poetry. "Earl S. Braggs' poems twist and wind through cities and streets, celebrating ordinary people and historical figures alike. He is generous enough to let them live in their own telling details, without bias. Like Whitman, he finds occasions for song everywhere. It is a rich, finely textured world full of surprises and insights. IN WHICH LANGUAGE DO I KEEP SILENT is a rich opportunity to experience this poet in all his powers"--James Tate.
