Landscapes of Dissent: Guerrilla Poetry and Public Space

by and

Landscapes of Dissent: Guerrilla Poetry and Public Space Cover

 

Staff Pick

Whether you call it political action, slogan, or aphorism, guerrilla poetry — the kind you hold in your hand (pamphlet or broadside) or see on the street — is probably more widely read and thought about than Walt Whitman. Imagine if Republican talking points were turned inside out and given a polish of compassion or truth. Boykoff and Sand, two Portland poets who have long been involved in political and social justice, give us Landscapes of Dissent, an informative and entertaining look at street art and action, by the people, for the people.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cultural Writing. Literary Criticism. Politics. Poetry. "Imagine--and witness--public space that is produced by us. In LANDSCAPES OF DISSENT, Sand and Boykoff remind us that there is a long history and ripe presence of intersections between poetry and politics. David Harvey is quoted in these pages as saying that public space is 'decisive.' In an age in which alienation is among our most prevalent health hazards, LANDSCAPES OF DISSENT demonstrates that poetry may be newly, again, good for you. This book is a gift. Take the power"--Carol Mirakove.

In an age in which alienation is among our most prevalent health hazards, Landscapes of Dissent demonstrates that poetry may be newly, again, good for you. This book is a gift. Take the power."
