About this title:

Synopsis: Once upon a time, the leaders of the city of Boston took it upon themselves to decide what could and could not be distributed or shown in the Boston Public Library. The phrase, “Banned in Boston,” came to be known as a catch-phrase for censorship of any kind, The title poem in this collection explores the impact of censorship, while that poem and all the others in the set speak to what Carl Nielsen once called “the inextinguishable.” It became a badge of honor to be banned in Boston, Just a few of the authors who found themselves so honored are Walt Whitman, Aldous Huxley, Ernest Hemmingway, Eugene O’Neill, and the Everly Brothers. But censorship is a universal problem. When Russian composers were under attack in 1948, Sergei Prokofiev commented to Dmitri Shostakovich “What do ministers know of music?” Or art, or writing? This collection includes the essay, “The Thrill of it All,” a personal reflection on finding oneself quoted. George Carlin once wrote that “more people write poetry than read it.” having a poem discovered and used as the inspiration and basis for another project means someone is paying attention, and that makes all this worth it.
