From Both Sides Now


Product Description
Product Details


David Lehman Author of Valentine Place and Editor of The Best American Poetry series No conflict has given rise to more deadly stereotypes than the war in Vietnam. Phillip Mahony's moving anthology helps to counteract such stereotypes while deepening our understanding of the single most divisive series of events in recent American history.
Nicholas Christopher Author of The Creation of the Night Sky and Veronica Phillip Mahony has done an extraordinary job of editing this anthology, which is both a compendium of haunting, biting, illuminating poetry, and a tremendously powerful cultural history -- in fact, a historical document -- like no other of the Vietnam War....To those of us who lived through the war, who fought it and fought against it, and to the generation that has come of age afterward, From Both Sides Now is quite simply an indispensable book. It views the war from a unique and penetrating angle, through the hard lens of poetry, and is certainly a permanent addition to the literature of the period. Mr. Mahony should be applauded for what he has given us here.
