REVOLUTIONARY POETS BRIGADE - LOS ANGELES ANTHOLOGY
This anthology, a selection of works from 70
local poets, and the great photo-art of local Venice artist, Mike Chamness, represents
a powerful and broad spectrum of voices throughout the entireregion. Though by no means intended to be an
exhaustive collection of all the great poets there are to discover here, let
this anthology speak as an introduction to the soul of our communities, here in
this great city, the belly of the beast, Los Angeles, California.
“That a Revolutionary Poets Brigade exists in Los Angeles
is a bit of a miracle and thanks to Mark Lipman in ElAye this Anthology
reflects some of the terrific poetry, outside the established institutions,
that exists in that area, from more renowned poets like Luis. J. Rodriguez to
terrific new voices like Henry Howard and venerables like Michael C
Ford. There’s potential for the biggest
Brigade in the States in Los Angeles.
Where did Romero come from? And
that Devcich, wow!”
~ Jack Hirschman, 4th Poet Laureate of San Francisco
“The Revolutionary Poets Brigade Anthology makes revolution
still possible in these cataclysmic terrible times.”
