"Following the laughter and the compassionate pith of a dauntless imagination, [Eady's] poems beeline or zig-zag always to the jugular, the dramatic and unarguable revelation of the heart."—June Jordan

CORNELIUS EADY is the author of seven books of poetry, including The Gathering of My Name, nominated for the 1992 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. His Victims of the Latest Dance Craze won the 1985 Lamont Award (now called the Laughlin Award) from the Academy of American poets.
