Said Not Said: Poems by Fred Marchant

"Fred Marchant teaches and awakens the soul." -Maxine Hong Kingston

someone in Benghazi with a hose in one hand
uses his free one to wipe down the corpse
water flows over the body and down
a tilted steel tray toward the drain

what washes off washes off

-"Below the Fold"

In this important and formally inventive new poetry collection, Fred Marchant brings us into realms of the intractable and the unacceptable, those places where words seem to fail us and yet are all we have. In the process he affirms lyric poetry's central role in the contemporary moral imagination. As the National Book Award winner David Ferry writes, "The poems in this beautiful new book by Fred Marchant are autobiographical, but, as is always the case with his poems, autobiographical of how he has witnessed, with faithfully exact and pitying observation, the sufferings in the lives of other people, for example the heartbreaking series of poems about the fatal mental suffering of his sister, and the poems about other peoples, in Vietnam, in the Middle East, written about with the noble generosity of feeling that has always characterized his work, here more impressively even than before."

Said Not Said is a poet's taking stock of conscience, his country's and his own, and of poetry's capacity to speak to what matters most.
