"An Eye For An Eye Makes The Whole World Blind" features poems by over 100 poets from all over America, including the former Poet Laureate of the United States. This important book creates an alternative poetic response to the din of collective madness that has characterized our national dialogue since 9/11/2001.
Many of the poets have projected themselves into the minds and the bodies of the victims of 9/11, and the firemen and policemen who were searching the wreckage of the buildings and even the hijackers. The poets express deep emotions and profound thoughts with the severe attention to detail that makes poems revelatory.
Upon reading these poems written by so many diverse poets one sees a deepening of perception, of renewed seriousness about the human predicament and about the necessity to evolve into our full humanity. We hope the poems will help readers feel more deeply, think about our future, and ultimately act to achieve a more peaceful and just world.
Poets include: Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Diane di Prima, Robert Creeley, Opal Palmer Adisa, Robert Pinsky, Michael McClure, devorah major, Nellie Wong, Jack Hirschman, David Meltzer, Neeli Cherkovski, Lyn Lifshin, Antler, John Sinclair, Allen Cohen, Clive Matson, Al Young, Steve Kowit, Gerald Nicosia, Q.R. Hand, Ira Cohen, Julia Vinograd, Jack Foley, Janine Pommy Vega, A.D. Winans, Shepherd Bliss, S.A. Griffin, Coleman Barks, Claire Burch, Gail Ford, Charles Pappas, and many more.
