9780966669169: Middle Ear (California Poetry)

Poetry. African American Studies. Forrest Hamer's first book, CALL & RESPONSE (Alice James, 1995; also available) won the Beatrice Hawley Award. Now, his newest book is the seventh selection in the new California Poetry Series. These poems speak from Hamer's memories of his Southern childhood, weaving that time into the daily dreams and insights of his life in northern California in a continuing series of vignettes. 'A man writes his dark body,' one poem tells us, and in fact this book inscribes exactly that: a full, breathing voice, muscular intelligence working in language that both startles and satisfies --Mark Doty.

Review:

...Middle Ear is to the ground of a world which, though almost imperceptible, is the site where real change occurs. -- Toi Derricotte

...the feelings that Hamer's lines deliver linger in the blood long after they enter the inner eye and ear. -- Al Young

Hamer is concerned with midlife, with standing in the middle of a stream of family and history... -- Mark Doty
