Angst & Wrath (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: Angst and Wrath collects the early poetry of Darius McCaskey. Written between 1990 and 2000, this volume contains over three dozen tempestuous poems about angst, love, identity, despair, spirituality, and wrath. Mr. McCaskey lays bare his raw teenage emotion with blunt, unforgiving language and a unique willingness to explore structure and syntax. Angst and Wrath: The Collected Early Works of Darius McCaskey is the definitive introduction to the earliest writing of this singular American poet.
