The Collected Poems of E. Ethelbert Miller - E. Ethelbert Miller

Staff Pick

E Ethelbert Miller’s poetry reverberates. This is that rare compilation of poetry that allows readers to see the poet’s evolution as a voice of the human experience. His work is simple and sharp, and both highly specific and widely accessible. We witness many voices, exploring and developing a growing awareness of the crossroads of the self and other, race, gender, individuality, history and inheritance; in specific scenes of a 1970s DC baring eerie resemblance to its 2016 self, or any urban American city. In poems of loss of voice in suffering and of emergent power in the same breath, Ethelbert Miller gives voice to America on the move and forever on the mend. The work invites all of us—our dreaming, hating, fearing, demanding, giving, laughing, suffering, hoping, and loving selves—to exhale our collective breath. This collection offers powerful solace in the truth that we are, as a people of universal heritage, a nation with a phoenix origin story. E Ethelbert Miller’s poetry reminds us of our capacity for regeneration, and challenges us to rise once again.
