- Book Details
Contains 100 poems written during - and responding to - Barack Obama's first 100 days in office. This work documents the political and personal events of those crucial days through a variety of contemporary poetic voices, from the ebullient to the admiring, from the pithy to the loquacious.
And could we get them to respond overnight, so that our project would coincide with Barack Obama beginning his job? Yes, we could! Poets wrote back immediately and with gusto'. Difficult to categorize but easy to enjoy, the poems in "Starting Today" offer something for every type of poetry reader, from the novice to the seasoned. This smart, timely collection offers a swirling portrait of the American Zeitgeist - a poetic reportage that demonstrates spontaneity, collaboration, immediacy, and accessibility.
