The second collection from Noah Warren, a Yale Younger Poet honoree and grandson of Robert Penn Warren. The contemporary intersects with the classical and grief intersects with wit and beauty in this smart set of poems. Warren also contends with the history of his literary family, noting “[The poem] "On Value" is the record of my attempting to overcome, or bury, or break, the legacy of my grandfather, Robert Penn Warren — the middlingness of the poems, the taints of racism.”
