Review quote

"Lord Byron s Foot "is worth the price of admission for the title poem alone, but every poem here has its surprises and pleasures. In George Green s poems, Jimmy Hendrix rubs shoulders with John Wilkes Booth, Pindar, and Maria Callas, to name a few. If this makes Green sound ironic and postmodern, that is misleading. Green treats his readers as though we were as cool, urbane, well-read, smart, and unpretentious as he is. He s probably wrong, but how can we not be flattered and beguiled? "A. E. Stallings""show more

Flap copy

George Green is a pop-culture Juvenal, whose satiric strain is both trenchant and elegiac. The poems in "Lord Byron s Foot "move deftly between the back alleys of Trieste and the parking lots of his hometown in Pennsylvania, between Chichester Cathedral and the downtown streets and parks of Manhattan where he has lived for three decades. Green s range and depth of knowledge in these technically accomplished poems might be intimidating if not for the disarming delight and passion with which he engages his material and the bizarrely raucous humor in which the poetry often revels."show more
