Romantic poets, revolutionaries, and gay icons lend their voices to these communiqués from lover to beloved, turning starry-eyed clichés on their heads. A carnivalesque eroticism pervades as Beauty, History, Love, and Revolution meet in this intrigue-fueled dramatic monologue from Minnesota poet Greg Hewett, whose previous collection Red Suburb was a BookSense Poetry Top Ten selection and winner of the Publishing Triangle Award.
