Abstract:

Randall Horton returns with renewed intensity to the themes that animated his acclaimed previous collections. An extended meditation on the legacy of slavery and Amistad serves as a prefatory note, while the body of the text confronts contemporary issues of racial identity and urban decay. Through innovative formal and visual techniques, Horton evokes the disorientating experiences of urban life, while also calling into question the complicity of language in the oppressive structures he anatomizes. -- Publisher description
