The Architecture of Language

By Quincy Troupe

About the Book


“Troupe’s poems resemble Romare Bearden’s collages: muscular and colorful.”—North American Review
 
In the Whitmanic tradition, Troupe’s poetry explodes from the page, capturing the spirit of America. Inspired by contemporary art, music, literature, and sports, The Architecture of Language dismantles the dangerously clichéd, wooden rhetoric saturating our national discourse and rebuilds the language in poems bursting with beauty, energy, and enough imaginative fire to light the way to the future.
