    People have written a lot of good memoirs about the Vietnam War but here is a most excellent memoir set to meter You know how they say, what poetry after Auschwitz, they being Adorno who really said, To write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric Arguably, writing poetry after any genocide or war is a charged mission, but it gets done and when it is done well, it a moment to give us all pause.Jim Fletcher s poems, compiled from his previous collections, with some new ones, capture the tread and trauma of war and its warriors with empathetic wryness In reading these poems, you traverse the seemingly routine terrain of a landscape and then you step on a word, a turn of phrase that detonates with illumination.These are poems written without affectation, perceptive, plainspoken and profound and not just about Vietnam but saluting soldiers mired in fields of battle everywhere A moving volume proving poetry s worth to mourning the toils of any war And you will understand EVERY word.

    Scattered through my other books, I have written about war and its aftermath, including some of my experiences in Vietnam But for the most part, I wasn t certain how I wanted to approach writing about my involvement in the war When I finally found a way to approach that period, I wrote a dozen poems within a few days I ve combined my previous war related poems with these new poems to create this book War become the first in my tetralogy of themed poetry books, which is now complete with Nature, Love, and Death.
