Poetry Book Club: Wicked Enchantment by Wanda Coleman
(Scroll Down for Log-In Information)
Wicked Enchantment collects the best work of legendary Los Angeles poet Wanda Coleman. In passionate tribute to the master,
Terrance Hayes has chosen more than 130 poems that span nearly four decades, poems that reveal Coleman's immense courage, charisma, and unerring social conscience.
Hayes writes in the introduction: "Wanda Coleman denounced boredom, cowardice, the staus quo.
Few poets of any stripe write with as much forthrightness about poverty, about literary ambition, about depression, about our violent, fragile passions.
Her poems combine manifesto and confession, inner and outer indictment, violence and tenderness, satire and sincerity."
