by Michael Thurston (87) of Northampton,
Mass. (University of North Carolina Press). Thurston offers a new
look at the political poetry of Edwin Rolfe, Langston Hughes, Ezra

reflection not only on how we evaluate poems, but also on what we
value in them. Thurston is an assistant professor of English at
Smith College in Northampton.

of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History,
the T.R. Fehrenbach Award from the Texas Historical Commission and

In what he calls a warts and all biography, Cantrell
covers Austins negative as well as positive qualities. He
also focuses on his personal side in addition to his public career
something previous biographers of Austin did not do.
