A Road-Map for America : Poems
Anandam P. KavooriISBN: 1413718531;
Book DescriptionThe poems in A Road-Map for America record an immigrant's experience of recent events from 9/11 to the war in Iraq. They attempt to culturally interrogate our recent history and to provide a set of ideas (through poetry) for re-thinking America's role in the world today-to provide, as the title suggests, a road-map for America. In doing so, the collection provides a counterpoint to contemporary political and media discourse. Taken together, the poems present ideas about media coverage, political accountability, global humanism, personal agency and ecological responsibility while providing a sustained critique of nationalist politics, corporatization and contemporary media practices. The poems follow the order in which they were written (with a few exceptions).
