Dread

Poems

14 January 2005

Ai (Author)

Description

A searing collection of poems about America's loss of innocence from the National Book Award-winning author of Vice.

In poems that travel from the horrific flight of a World War II pilot to the World Trade Center attack, from the death of JFK Jr. to the poet's own bastard birth, Ai conjures purity as a distant memory and the knowledge of evil as an "infinite dark night." "An undoubtedly powerful personae."—Publishers Weekly "Ai's cleansing soliloquies give voice to pain both personal and communal....[Dread] presents her most masterfully unnerving works to date."—Booklist  "Dread has the characteristic moral strength that makes Ai a necessary poet."—The New York Times Book Review
