Blue Laws: Selected and Uncollected Poems, 1995-2015

We rated this book:

For those of us who love poetry, this book will be a great addition to your library. It is a compendium of culture with tributes to a variety of genres: music, literature, poetry and art. Young writes about Jean-Michel Basquiat, Billie Holiday, Langston Hughes, Miles Davis and Grace Jones. These are wonderful tributes, and the collection demonstrates the contributions of black culture and its unique voice masterfully.

As is true with most poets, Young loves words and word play. His poem, Errata is a fun excursion in spoonerisms.

Blue Laws is a collection from over two decades of Kevin Young’ s writing life including previously published poems and some uncollected until this volume. One would certainly get their money’s worth in this large collection. It is a handsome volume and would make a great gift.

Kevin Young has written ten books of poetry. The poems are also a whole lot of playful fun. The poet has a keen sense of humor. It was wonderful for me to discover this volume and find Kevin Young, a major American poet.
