RECOMMENDED READING AT END OF YEAR 2018
A lot of angst marked the end of 2018. The economic and political crisis abroad and at home have polarized the world and our nation and rendered most of us powerless, when the promises of hope have plummeted. The fear and hopelessness are pervasive. They have bubbled and burst into our emotional domain and psyche. There is a need to examine it. There are two recent books (published in 2018) to help us to understand the current crisis, exploring the structure of fear in political crisis and moral anxiety philosophically. As poet, we read, reflect and write, and share those landscapes in our poetry.
