Edited by Marvin Bell
"The poets in this volume--Valentine Freeman, Robert Peake and Jensea Storie-like those in the first four volumes, deserve to be better known, but public promotion of the poets was never my primary aim. That would be a bonus, but only a bonus. Rather, I hoped the chance to put together a short book for print would reconfirm for each poet the personal, even intimate, value of the imagination in general and of poetry in particular. Their own imaginations, and their own poetry."
The Lost Horse Press New Poets | Short Books Series, edited by Marvin Bell, brings together three short books of poetry under one cover. Human Shade appears in Volume V, along with excellent poetry collections by up-and-coming American poets Jensea Storie and Valentine Freeman.
