Acacia Road September 25, 2018 By Collegeville Instititute Staff Aaron Brown Eugene, Oregon, Silverfish Review Press, 2018 Visit this title on Amazon Poetry. African & African American Studies. “These poems proceed by an earnest story-telling and remembering. And while the surfaces of the poems are characterized by skillful narrative and descriptive impulses, underpinning most of them runs a deeper agon and self-critique, uncovering both a fear of and a relentless thirst for the ecstatic. These poems embody, at their best, that thirst.”–Li-Young Lee Like this post? Subscribe to have new posts sent to you by email the same day they are posted.
