All of Yesterday's Tomorrows: Collected Poems

Adult; Poetry; (Market)

"We shall write
          because there is no longer
a place to see 'The Light that Came From Beside the Sea,'
                              the account of our place in shadow
                    a place to see the onset of life

There is the original book, the primordial writing;
but who can read it? His identity is hidden."

This introductory and posthumous collection represents Ramez Qureshi's powerful poetic achievements. From the intensely personal to meditations on poetry and art, his works are often philosophical and frequently political, always crafted with love of the form and passion for his subjects. In addition to four sections of more traditionally formed verse, this book is anchored by the titular work, a long-form experimental poetic collage whose elements and inspirations include excerpts from a Marxism conference and the Popol Vuh, and a choreographed conceptual dance piece. In Ramez's own words, All of Yesterday's Tomorrows is a "philosophical meditation on the dialectics of arts and politics."
