The Tradition by Jericho Brown

ISBN: 9781529020472 Category: Tags: ,


The Tradition by Jericho Brown winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry is a cutting and necessary collection relentless in its quest for survival while revelling in a celebration of contradiction. A Poetry Book Society Choice ‘To read Jericho Brown’s poems is to encounter devastating genius.’ Claudia Rankine Jericho Brown’s daring poetry collection The Tradition details the normalization of evil and its history at the intersection of the past and the personal. Brown’s poetic concerns are both broad and intimate and at their very core a distillation of the incredibly human: What is safety? Who is this nation? Where does freedom truly lie? Poems of fatherhood legacy blackness queerness worship and trauma are propelled into stunning clarity by Brown’s mastery and his invention of the duplex – a combination of the sonnet the ghazal and the blues – testament to his formal skill.
