9781590781883: A Fury of Motion: Poems for Boys

Think poems are for sissies and grandmothers? Then check Charles Ghigna's engaging new book of verse, A Fury of Motion. With style, humor, and passion, Ghigna has created a world in which adolescents and teenagers, especially boys, will find empathy and refuge. In forty-six poems, the poet delivers a hearty mix of verse that conveys the power at the line of scrimmage, the "lost boys" of hunting season, the threat of loneliness, the clarity of autumn, and the silliness of science. Here's a thoroughly appealing book that will attract those teens who believe poetry is far beneath or beyond them.
