Paperback

Jesus is not white. Jesus is not American. Jesus does not want to make America great.

The New Testament: Poems

Author: 
Jericho Brown
List Price: 
$17.00
Type: 
Paperback

These poems bear witness to survival in the face of brutality, while also elegizing two brothers haunted by shame, two lovers hounded by death, and an America wounded by war and numbered by religion. Brown summons myth, fable, and fairytale not to merely revise the Bible -- more so to write the kind of lyric poetry we find at the source of redemption -- for the profane and for the sacred.
