Read America(s) is a poetry anthology that responds to the idea of America(s). It offers poetry not just from the United States of America, not just from North and South America, but from any manifestation of America(s); from Pangaea to apocalypse, from and occupying every negotiated borderland in between. This anthology inspires one to ask: what is/are America(s)? What are its boundaries? Where is it? Is it real? What language does it speak? This collection expresses the America(s) of the mind, of physical space, of the body and bodies in and around it. LHP offers a collection of poets who are re-writing borders--borders of inclusion and exclusion, safety and danger, highly politicized existence, physical and emotional resources. Read America(s) is myriad voices capturing the triumph--and the inadequacies--of language to navigate and grapple with the complexities of America(s).
