More Info

The name of the title poem--"Brother Salvage: a "genizah,"" provides a skeleton key to unlock the powerful forces that bind Rick Hilles's collection. A "genizah" is a depository, or hiding place, for sacred texts. It performs a double function: to keep hallowed objects safe and to prevent more destructive forces from circulating and causing further harm. Brother Salvage serves exactly this purpose. The poems are heartrending and incisive, preserving stories and lives that should not be forgotten. Yet, through the poet's eloquent craft, painful histories and images are beautifully and luminously contained. Like scholars sifting through ancient "genizahs" in search of spiritual and historical insights, readers immersed in Brother Salvage will find, at the heart of the book, the most sacred entity: hope.
