Description


Poetry. LGBTQIA Studies. Disability Studies. Laura Hershey was a vital, brilliant, and until now lesser-known American poet who, during her short life, was a major invigorating force in the movements for disability rights, queer poetries, and activist poetics. Her poems speak from the margins with the force of truth--eloquently, ferociously, and beautifully. This volume of the Unsung Masters Series, carefully curated by poets Meg Day and Niki Herd, reintroduces a wide selection of Hershey's writing to a new generation of readers. Also included are essays about her life and work by other poets and critics as well as a portfolio of photographs.
