Poetry and the Language of Oppression

Poetry and the Language of Oppression is a book of essays about the writing process and the challenges of addressing social issues in a language meant to express personal feelings and the inner life. I talk about the power of language in our personal lives and also in our public, civic, lives in the Oxford Comment Podcast. But these essays also a tell a personal story of the Cold War and of government surveillance, and how writing is a healing process.
