In CountryHugh Martin
Hugh Martin’s second full-length poetry collection moves within and among history to broaden and complicate our understanding of war. These poems push beyond tidy generalizations and easy moralizing as they explore the complex, often tense relationships between U.S. soldiers and Iraqi civilians. The speaker journeys through training to deployment and back again, returning home to reflect on the soldiers and civilians -both memories and ghosts- left behind. Filled with recollected dialogue and true-to-life encounters, these poems question, deconstruct, examine and reintegrate the myths and realities of service.
