Run toward fear: new poems and a poet's handbook
Haki R. Madhubuti minces no words in 'Run Toward Fear', a powerful new collection of poetry. The collection offers readers a mixture of poems that challenge and cause both reflection and question on many of the headline issues that have launched this century. Madhubuti includes poignant moving tributes to Jacob Carruthers, Gwendolyn Brooks and Amiri Baraka, as well as, heartfelt words that provide comfort and guidance to the families of the twenty-one who lost their lives in Chicago's E-2 night club tragedy. Madhubuti, motivated by constant requests from younger poets and teachers of poetry to share his insights on writing and the art of producing poetry, offers an added extra in 'Run Toward Fear'. The final section of the book, 'A Poet's Handbook', provides personal and sometimes anecdotal insights on the craft of writing poetry. The 'Handbook' serves as a practical answer to the book's final poem 'For the Consideration of Poets'.
