Description

"Troupe's poems resemble Romare Bearden's collages: muscular and colorful."--North American Review

In the Whitmanic tradition, Troupe's poetry explodes from the page, capturing the spirit of America. Inspired by contemporary art, music, literature, and sports, The Architecture of Language dismantles the dangerously cliched, wooden rhetoric saturating our national discourse and rebuilds the language in poems bursting with beauty, energy, and enough imaginative fire to light the way to the future.
