About this Item

Winner of the 1999 James Laughlin Award of the Academy of American Poets. Yusef Komunyakaa, 1999 Laughlin Award judge, has said "The voice here is not stingy; it is a full-throated singing that demands a passionate response because it has compassion for the reader. The book is brave, and a bold sophistication is in the heartbeat of the truth-telling.". Bookseller Inventory # 7322

About this title


Tory Dent's is a voice like no other. Her use of language is virtuosic, complex, and plangent. These are daring poems that also dare the reader. HIV positive, Dent writes out of her own experience and profound refusal to look away or suspend feeling or turn from love. When her first book of poems, What Silence Equals, appeared in 1993, it was recognized as "immediately one of the great, necessary books to come out of the AIDS crisis, flinging its challenge in the face of death." With HIV, Mon Amour she moves further into the whirlwind -- as witness, lover, and observer.
