David Kader is a professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, Arizona State University, and an affiliate faculty member of the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. He holds a J.D. from the University of Washington School of Law and an LL.M. from the University of London. Michael Stanford is an attorney in the Office of the Maricopa County Public Defender, Phoenix, Arizona. He holds a Ph.D. in English from the University of Virginia and a J.D. from the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. He has published poetry as well as a number of articles on Renaissance and modern literature.
Until now there has been nothing like this collection. The poems included here have depth, both chronologically and topically, and Kader and Stanford have written an introduction that will appeal to scholars and nonscholars alike. I admire their choice of which poems to include and think that their discussion of why the book is necessary is intelligent and will whet the appetite of any reader. L. H.
