The Killer Will Remain Free: On Pat Parker and the Poetics of Madness

Title:
The Killer Will Remain Free: On Pat Parker and the Poetics of Madness
Authors:
Ali, Kazim
Abstract:
Poet and scholar Kazim Ali reads Pat Parker's Movement in Black intimately, one poet to another, uncovering the shadow-fact of the lives of most people of color: not only the anger that is somehow sublimated into every part of our lives but also the issue that carrying this feeling around has on our mental health itself-that "anger" and "madness" might have sources in one another. Ali concludes that Parker offers a brutal and clear-eyed and ultimately hopeful assessment of the conditions that were faced at the time, and even now, by communities of color.
