Allison Joseph and Black Book History
I've followed Allison Joseph's work for years. I'm usually commenting on her individual poems, but it's worth noting that she's been quite productive producing volumes of poetry. She's published at least 18 books.
She's been plugging away, steadily publishing collections. I've enjoyed the poems individually, and it's been something to think about her work in total. Maybe someday, a publisher and editor will gather all of her many poems and put them together in a single, large volume. We can hope.
When I think of the many interrelated volumes in my personal collection, I often consider the books by Joseph. Her works also contribute to my varied thoughts about Black Book History.
