A Powerful Book of Short Poems, Deep and Long in Meaning
With this book of poems inspired by his Special Ed students, Charles Bernstein not only uncovers the cruelty, but also the poetry in their lives, which can find light in the darkest places: "The sun never comes to the residents /of the old-age home, except as reflected through the eyes of my kids." Heroes And Saints Often it is a student's own words that turns the literal into the figurative. To describe the jacks he has thrown spinning on the floor, Jason says: "Look at the ballerinas/ dancing on their tiptoes" Pea-Brain....In brief, a powerful and exciting book of short poems, deep and long in meaning. Sanford Fraser
This is a book of poetry. More so, however, is that it is a collection of stories by students in a special education classroom. These stories are transcribed as poetry; which on their own take you to another world. Some of the poems had me crying.
