Words in your Face

Item Details

The definitive history of a revolutionary time in poetry showcasing the poets' own voices and stories. It situates New York slam poetry in the history of oral tradition and especially within the three main arts movements in the 20th century. It traces the birth of the movement at Nuyorican Poets' Cafe and draws on interviews with the leading lights ofthe movement in Chicago and San Francisco. Also traced is the explosive growth of Slam as MTV picked it up along with the spoken word record label, Mercury Records. Illuminating and highly fascinating.
