Entrepot by Mark McMorris
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Stylistically engaging, formally innovative, and intellectually stimulating, the poem-letters of this book bring something new to the genre. As our editor says, McMorris is unique in his "ability to leap back and forth between the highly personal and intimate with the political, especially with war. The Iraq war specifically, but more importantly war in general pervades this manuscript, in the same way that war acts, and has acted throughout history, like a virus. . . . Many of these poems are told in the form of letters, which allows for a different kind of intimate tone than a normal lyric, and also reinforces the fact that poems, and language, are about communication. The voice is sagacious and, in a way, takes the point of view of both a keen observer of history and someone merely giving advice to a friend, or a message to a lover. This is truly great work." Mark McMorris also joins Coffee House Press's growing list of important poets of the Caribbean-a list that includes Victor Hernandez Cruz, Quincy Troupe, and Adrian Castro.
