About this title


Includes the poem, "The Wall Within," Steve Mason's poem that is included in the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial ("The Wall") in Washington, DC

From School Library Journal:

YA Mason, named the National Poet Laureate of the Vietnam Veterans of America, has collected poems that he has written for and read at memorials and to groups of veterans. In one he points out the day-to-day acceptance of war with the image of a mother screaming from her front door, "Johnny, for the last time put down those peace treaties and come in the house this instant you can play Geneva Convention after Dinner." Although the poems have a direct appeal to the Vietnam veterans and their families and friends, YAs will also be stirred by Mason's work. He writes of the guilt of the living, the bereavement of the families, and the dislike for those who "didn't go" but instead relied upon favorable lottery numbers. To understand this war, YAs need to "feel" it. By reading Mason's poetry, they will. Pam Spencer, Mount Vernon High School Library, Fairfax, Va.
