Summary:
The conceit that unites this collection is the technology, lore, and tradition of hot-metal printing. Greg Delanty grew up in a family of printers, and as a youth he worked in the composing room. The 'hellbox' is the bin into which printers chucked broken or worn type. The language of printing, literal, and symbolic, inspires a series of moving and powerful poems.
