This is a gathering of essays, poems, and recollections dedicated to the memory of poet, scholar, teacher, and political activist, Enid Dame 1943 - 2003]. The rich array of contributions were written by friends, colleagues, and some who didn't know Enid personally but were moved and influenced by her life's work and ebullient spirit. For nearly a quarter of a century, she edited, with her husband Donald Lev, Home Planet News, and was a beloved member of the New York poetry community for as long. The cumulative effect of this gathering of encomiums recalls Enid as only language and art can do.
