Unrecovered: 9/11 Poems, Then As Now

This book combines Sean Howard’s “Blackbox Angelus” – a long poem written in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks – with a new poem revisiting those devastating events and exploring their lasting impact. Howard’s iconoclastic style echoes the shock and fracture of its subject, disassembling and reassembling the language surrounding this tragedy in an attempt to create uncommon sense where the usual conventions of grief and closure have failed, leaving the remains of that terrible day unrecovered.
