LookLook by Solmaz Sharif

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A devastatingly powerful work about the true terror of the age we live in. The poet uses terms from the United States Department of Defense's Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms to tell how the war of terror affects real human lives and how our language has been usurped and corrupted by the language of war. Tough, demanding reading at times, but vital, heart-wrenching, and brilliant. Probably the best book of poetry published this year. Highly recommended.
