Synopses & Reviews
I believe Carrying the Darkness is the best anthology of poetry to come out of the Vietnam War. The poets in this collection have given their experiences in Vietnam a vital reality that transcends time and grabs your heart. The bitter pain of war and war's aftermath in Carrying the Darkness is so palpable and persuasive that it's almost unbearable. When you read Carrying the Darkness, you read about war as it really is -- and you will never be the same.
