Vision of a New Past: Poems About America by Bill Chene

Vision of a New Past: Poems About America by Bill Chene
(2007)

This collection of slam poetry offers whimsical yet often biting commentary on our country and its culture. The poems in his book read with a head-bobbing rhythm, and are often simultaneously playful and radical. As Chene notes, "If there's a theme about America today, it is alienation...we’re all outsiders at one level or another, and I like to balance that with a little whimsy. It's one thing to talk about how the world sucks, but you have to have humor to balance that out."
