Summary
When it first appeared, Dead on Arrival announced the emergence of a strong new voice in African-American verse. Fresh and unadorned, these poems were deeply rooted in Green's own life and family. Yet they were also magical, visionary, and often angry, moving beyond the local to encompass the tidal sweep of history and the struggles of a race. [We] are pleased to re-issue the second edition of Dead on Arrival ... so that readers may now see the development of Green's voice over two decades of poetic achievement. --Carolina Wren Press
