This anthology of poems about Elvis invites readers to experience the connection between the historical and mythical status of The King, on the one hand, and the poetic imagery of him on the other. All Shook Up! combines history and myth and art―in the words of some of our most well–known poets and in the elegant and revealing photographs of Jon Hughes.

About the Author:

Will Clemens holds a B.A. degree in English and history, an M.A. in English, and an M.F.A. in creative writing. His writings have been published by several periodicals, including the Explicator, the Kenyon Review, and Rain Taxi. Since 1997, he has edited fiction for the Antioch Review, and taught at the University of Cincinnati.

From Publishers Weekly:

Cornelius Eady, Joyce Carol Oates, Ai, Lucille Clifton and Thom Gunn are just a few of the poets who wax sentimental in All Shook Up: Collected Poems about Elvis, edited by Will Clemens, with 22 b&w photographs by Jon Hughes. David Wojhan imagines William Carlos Williams "Watching Presley's Second Appearance on `The Ed Sullivan Show': Mercy Hospital, Newark, 1956": "The tube,/ like the sonnet,/ is a fascist form./ I read they refused/ to show this kid's/ wriggling bum."
