A new collection from the award winner who has become one of the most compelling new voices in American poetry Terrance Hayes is an elegant and adventurous writer with disarming humor, grace, tenderness, and brilliant turns of phrase. He is very much interested in what it means to be an artist and a black man. In his first collection, "Muscular Music," he took the reader through a living library of cultural icons, from Shaft and Fat Albert to John Coltrane and Miles Davis. His second collection, "Hip Logic," continued these explorations of popular culture, fatherhood, cultural heritage, and loss. "Wind in a Box," Hayes's resonant new collection, continues his interest in how traditions (of poetry and culture alike) can be simultaneously upended and embraced. The struggle for freedom (the wind) within containment (the box) is the unifying motif as Hayes explores how identity is shaped by race, heritage, and spirituality. This new book displays not only what the "Los Angeles Times" calls the range of a "bold virtuoso," but also the imaginative fervor of a poet in love with poetry.
