    Book Description:
    Yusef Komunyakaa is one of the most highly regarded US poets now at work; Scandalize My Name selects from twenty-five years of his remarkable poetry. Komunyakaa’s vision of the poem as a ’distilled insinuation’ is honoured and intensified in this graceful and sensual verse, whose vigorous myth-making only heightens the political and social realities it often addresses. Scandalize My Name introduces a poet of great versatility and singular commitment, one whose eye remains steady where others have turned away.
