"Poetry has a long and living history in Cleveland, Ohio, and this examination of its past through the lens of its vibrant present is a treasure in and of itself.  They're all here, the great ones who showed the way - Langston Hughes, d.a. levy, Alberta Turner, Robert Wallace, Daniel Thompson.  They set the bar pretty high.  But as the editors demonstrate, their sons and daughters carry on, bringing the word to the city's streets and universities, libraries and coffee houses.  They do what poetry does best: they shout love at the heart of the world.  Here it is."  -- Ron Antonucci, Cleveland Public Library, Literature Director
