Black

(2006)
A collection of poems by

 
Black is the companion volume to the author's acclaimed collection Blue. But while the previous book meditated on the author's history as a black man growing up in Nova Scotia, Black is a brutally honest look at the present and future. Inspired by George's time as a professor in North Carolina in the late 1990s, the book uses vivid images and surprising juxtapositions to riff on the experiences of a black man living with political and personal outrage. This is not pretty poetry but lacerating, transgressive, and ultimately transforming.
