Poems for Explosion

Authored by John G. Hall
Edition: 1st

This book features 60 pages of John G. Hall's best poems, illlustrated by Becky Mackay and published in the USA by Crisis Chronicles Press.

Jack Hirschman says of Poems for Explosion, "These are 'letter rip' poems by a very conscious British poet who is forever breaking the chokehold that Willie Shakespeare has bent around the neck of that island. Hall really wants to include everything and everybody - he unloads personal and political contradictions with an organized spontaneity that is refreshing and millennial, and his urgencies are upbeat and rooted in a totalizing expressivity."

Gerry Potter says, "Powerhouse tenderness and lyrical agility bind together John's remarkable use of language to give work of lasting worth and historical accuracy. John G Hall is poet first and foremost and a 20th-21st century documenter second to none. In a world of increasing unfairness we need work of this richness and colour to keep us sane."
