THE GOLDEN SHOVEL ANTHOLOGY: NEW POEMS HONORING GWENDOLYN BROOKS
edited by Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar & Patricia Smith
with a foreword by Terrance Hayes
published by Arkansas

Gwendolyn Brooks was the first black writer to receive the Pulitzer Prize for poetry back in 1950. A new book honors her work in using a form called the golden shovel, developed by poet Terrance Hayes. In The Golden Shovel Anthology, poets select a line from a poem of Brooks’s and use it as the closing line or lines in a poem of their own. The result is an expansive and extraordinary assemblage edited by poets Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar, and Patricia Smith.
