Summary
A collection of nearly sixty poems dealing with revenge and forgiveness, plus suggested readings about each contributing poet. Revenge and forgiveness are two of the most prominent elements in the history of human interaction. With each generation, one or the other may seem to increase or diminish in importance, but across continents and centuries, the fierceness with which people long for both remains undiminished. Acclaimed anthologist and teacher Patrice Vecchione has put together an immensely powerful group of poems, gathered from different eras and cultures, all of which address the timeless and uniquely human desires for revenge and for forgiveness. "When you seek revenge, dig two graves."-Anonymous. A poetry anthology for teens on a perennially important topic. Acclaimed anthologist and teacher Patrice Vecchione has put together an immensely powerful group of poems, all of which address the timeless and uniquely human desires for revenge and for forgiveness. "The events of September 11th inspired this book. I wanted to create a tangible forum, a book to hold in our hands, to help frame and think not just about terrorism but about who we are as individuals and who we are as a country. It's been gestating in me for all this time. Finding these poems was like turning little lights on to illumine the dark. How can beauty be made out of ugliness and fear? Can it rise from ash?"-Patrice Vecchione
