Customer Review

on 12 June 2009
Verses That Hurt is an anothology of work from a varied set of intensely creative poets. As a record of the best poetry to come out of America in the last 20 years you can't get much better or more interesting than this. The works, from poets like Allen Ginsberg and Todd Colby, deserve far more notoriety than is currently expressed; apart from Ginsberg this is a hugely underrated and under published set of poets. Some works lose the audio-vibrance that is set out in Poemofone: New World Order, but others remain as glowing and fantastic as when they were read, screamed and sung by the poets. The two introductions, one by Trachtenberg and one by Colby, are insightful of the era and people that spawned Poemfone. I urge anyone interested in modern literture to buy a copy of this anothology before the (probably) small print dries up.
