Poetry. African American Studies. "Myronn Hardy's THE HEADLESS SAINTS is a book comprised of lyrical epiphanies that embrace the everyday and the mythical, and there is no way to escape the full thrust of these marvelous poems. The tropical feel in THE HEADLESS SAINTS, in the pace and space of the crafted imagery, is tangible and believable"--Yusef Komunyakaa. "These spare, clear-eyed verses are remarkable for the ease with which they reveal a poet of ambitious intelligence and well-honed craft. Myronn Hardy has written a collection of quietly combustible poems that remind us of just what a gifted poet's deftly judicious craft can produce in music and emotion"--Kwame Dawes.
