Poetry. MARS BEING RED is the most political book of Bell's storied career—and one of his most beautiful. In a recent interview Marvin Bell said, "I've been trying for thirty years to figure out how best to put the news into poems—what other people would call politics. But there are some hairy aesthetic questions connected to overtly political poems."
