Special powers and abilities : poems

Author: Raymond McDaniel
Publisher: Minneapolis : Coffee House Press, 2013.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 1st ed
Summary:
"McDaniel's poems find in superheroes an intimate, religious subject, both playful and tragic. Manipulating a range of traditional forms--versets, kennings, and sonnets--his poems consider the history of how we look at the future and take on an almost Talmudic complexity." --P.[4] cover.
