Ed Colker, Introductory note: "We seem to be in a global moment of cruelty and abuse, often attended by a lack of decency and compassion or caring response, an absence of humanitas …
"But in the work of modern and contemporary poets, along with piercing observation, one can find acute sensitivity to struggle and to hurts inflicted – personal or public.
"With this awareness, in our 52nd year of pints/editions for poetry, we offer this portfolio."
