WINNER OF THE 2020 PULITZER PRIZE FOR POETRYFinalist for the 2019 National Book Award100 Notable Books of the Year, The New York Times Book ReviewOne Book, One Philadelphia Citywide Reading Program Selection, 2021By some literary magic--no, it's precision, and honesty--Brown manages to bestow upon even the most public of subjects the most intimate and personal stakes.--Craig Morgan Teicher, "'I Reject Walls': A 2019 Poetry Preview" for NPR "A relentless dismantling of identity, a difficult jewel of a poem."--Rita Dove, in her introduction to Jericho Brown's "Dark" (featured in theNew York Times Magazine in January 2019)"Winner of a Whiting Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, Brown's hard-won lyricism finds fire (and idyll) in the intersection of politics and love for queer Black men."--O, The Oprah MagazineNamed a Lit Hub "Most Anticipated Book of 2019"One of Buzzfeed's "66 Books Coming in 2019 You'll Want to Keep Your Eyes On"The Rumpuspoetry pick for "What to Read When 2019 is Just Around the Corner"One of BookRiot's "50 Must-Read Poetry Collections of 2019"Jericho Brown's daring new book The Tradition details the normalization of evil and its history at the intersection of the past and the personal. Brown's poetic concerns are both broad and intimate, and at their very core a distillation of the incredibly human: What is safety? Who is this nation? Where does freedom truly lie? Brown makes mythical pastorals to question the terrors to which we've become accustomed, and to celebrate how we survive. Poems of fatherhood, legacy, blackness, queerness, worship, and trauma are propelled into stunning clarity by Brown's mastery, and his invention of the duplex--a combination of the sonnet, the ghazal, and the blues--is testament to his formal skill. The Tradition is a cutting and necessary collection, relentless in its quest for survival while reveling in a celebration of contradiction.
