Reviews

"[Komunyakaa] call[s] to mind Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman-- the private gaze and the civic drum, purifying language, purifying history." --Darryl Lorenzo Wellington, The Washington Post Book World "Verses that practically sizzle and spark with intelligence . . . Komunyakaa thinks like a scholar and writes like a jazz musician. His poems wail and swing to the backbeat of African-American history, dropping knowledge with a wink and a nod to let you know, yes, this man knows a thing or two about what he's talking about." --John Freeman, The Philadelphia Inquirer "Yusef Komunyakaa is . . . one of our period's most significant and individual voices . . . He has a near-revelatory capacity to give himself over to his subject matter and to the taut concision of his free verse . . . Dazzling." --David Wojahn, Poetry "[Warhorses ] is galvanizing in its fury and decisive in its rare power . . . Komunyakaa crafts metaphors and images of shocking precision and startling intensity." --Donna Seaman, Booklist [Komunyakaa] call[s] to mind Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman-- the private gaze and the civic drum, purifying language, purifying history.
