About this title

Synopsis:

A book of electrifying poems by the acclaimed author of Push ("Brutal . . . redemptive"--Newsweek) and American Dreams ("Her insights are precise, terrifying, and ultimately hopeful. She sings in many voices, and every one of them cries out for justice" --Dorothy Allison).
Alive with the emotional honesty and intellectual force for which Sapphire has been admired as both a writer and a performance artist, these forty-seven poems take us into America's past and present, bearing testimony to the black experience in a country fragmented by war, racism, and urban and domestic violence. They tell the story of a search for the complicated spiritual path back to one's roots, a story of family, race, and self-transformation.

A provocative book that astonishes by the power of its language.

From the Back Cover:

"Few literary works today are as affecting as [Sapphire's] or have had as much impact on our society." --Poets and Writers

"An enrapturing voice that charms and shocks." --The Miami Herald

"In Black Wings and Blind Angels, Sapphire hammers home pain until it is the shape of hope. . . . It is a must for poetry fans." --The Advocate

"[Sapphire's] characteristic intensity mixes with classical as well as experimental forms, excavating dreams, memory, and history to address a multitude of topics." --The Village Voice Literary Supplement
