Summary

"Every last one of us is someone else's Outsider, " AI Young says in the introductory notes for this collection. The poets Lucille Clifton, Mark Doty, Joy Harjo, Maxine Kumin, and Stanley Kunitz, among others, address the guises of alienation and loneliness and celebrate the stranger in society.
