A Complex Bravery: Poems

Front Cover
Marick Press, Jan 1, 2006 - Poetry - 70 pages
0 Reviews
Poetry. A collection of 55 poems that rip through the raw and uncensored mine fields of life, lust and war among family, friends, acquaintances, and the author himself. While they don't emerge victorious, each of the muses exhibits--as the title indicates--a complex bravery. "He writes from the consciousness of the bombed and 'the living narrator.' World-weary, grieving, cynical, ironic, raging, from the real to the surreal, A COMPLEX BRAVERY is of the drek of our world gone mad. "Not Me in Nablus" is one of the most important poems of this era."--Sharon Doubiago. "Lipton's poems are a gang that takes no prisoners: his voice is direct, his tone is clear, his diction is ironic but his irony is earned and felt-through."--Ilya Kaminsky.
