The World Will Follow Joy
Here the author offers more than 60 new poems to incite and nurture contemporary activists. This collection features verse that deals with history, politics and nature, and pays tribute to Jimmy Carter, Gloria Steinem, and the Dalai Lama. She imbues her poetry with evocative images, fresh language, anger, forgiveness, and wisdom. By actively chronicling the conditions of human life today, she shows her compassion, spirituality, and necessary political commitments; these poems remind us of our human capacity to come together and take action, even in troubled political times, and illuminate what it means to live in our world today. -- From book jacket.
