Poetry. African & African American Studies. Women's Studies. Revised and reissued in 2015, originally published by Belladonna* in 2006. In this book, which begins with a love poem and is encased in sepia images of her blind ancestor, Erica Hunt continues her rigorous and beautiful practice—unflinching, lyrical, politically astute, bodily-located, unpredictable language.
Erica Hunt is a poet, essayist, and author of LOCAL HISTORY (Roof Books, 1994) and Arcade, as well as two poem chapbooks including TIME SLIPS RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES (Belladonna*, 2006/2015), with bits published in Boundary 2, Conjunctions, PoeticsJournal, Tripwire, and the St. Mark's Poetry Project Newsletter. Hunt has received awards from the Foundation for Contemporary Art and the Fund for Poetry and the Djerassi Foundation.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
