Abstract: 
"This compilation of Chicago working class poems is reminiscent of Sandburg's Windy City years in its big shoulder curbside observation. If you had just entered the pearly gates of heaven Lee's poetry would be there, but you'd find this book, a halo with dreams, on heaven's train tracks contemplating jumping the ledge and burning all the way down like a Parliament light.

Hands of the Heroes

Catalog Number: 
Book Slemmons, Kiff
Date: 
1987-1991
Edition: 
First
Abstract: 
"There are forty-three heroes in this book...Since I saw these monumental figures as icons...I decided on a size and shape for the hand that would depict them." The personalities and accomplishments of 43 iconic heroes are represented by Kiff Slemmons' jewelry-like pins shaped like hands. Each work stands as an allegory representing the qualities, virtues, and significance of each hero to Slemmons. Included is a biographic essay and poem that serve to give greater scope to the work; a largely pictorial work.
