Black Marks on White Paper

by Michelle Antoinette Nelson

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Black Marks on White Paper is a revelatory poetic experience bound together by heart- swelling narratives and provocative confessional work.
Description
Michelle Antoinette Nelson is heralded as one of the most prolific poets of her generation. She audaciously transcends the boundaries of genre, race, gender, age, and sexuality with her work. Black Marks on White Paper seamlessly binds the readers' life experiences with hers as each page is turned. Separated into three distinct sections Michelle takes the reader on a journey through the lives and circumstances of others with heart racing narrative pieces; while ferociously attacking her personal demons, and fearlessly revealing her own struggle with provocative and moving confessional poems. Black Marks on White Paper is not just about the words you see but the words you don't, the erasures, revisions, and conversations; the past, the present, and the future; the Griot, the Woman, and the Warrior.
