Praise For Poetry After 9/11: An Anthology of New York Poets…
“There was something more to be said that only poetry could say. It is eloquently said here."
"After last year's tragic attack on the World Trade Center, Americans turned to poetry both to find expressions for their grief and to assuage it. Not surprisingly, poets themselves turned to the blank page (or computer screen) to sum up the nation's sense of loss. Some of the best efforts are captured in this fine anthology....An excellent addition to most collections."
"An impressive roster of poets...."
"Noteworthy for the high quality of its poems...."
"...an acknowledgement of [poetry's] ability to express the unfathomable."
"....an intriguing alternative to the many where-were-you accounts of the day that are flooding stores."
—Rocky Mountain News
"[The] poems in the book distill emotions, add to our record of images both real and imagined."
