Verses by Mark Eric

Early Reviews

5 Star Amazon Review "Verses stuns with its gut-wrenching snapshot of the reality Black Men in America face from the moment of birth. Mark Eric's prose took my breath away, brought tears to my eyes, and bled my heart, but it also shed a brilliant harsh light on the world through His eyes. I only hope and pray that His words add another ripple to the movement of change."  ~kat

 

5 Star Amazon Review "Fantastic collection. Gives you a window into a world you have no idea of, unless you lived it yourself. Really enjoyed it."  ~D. Brown

Verses Synopsis

Pain. Strength. Courage. Defiance.

 

Mark Eric follows up his debut novel, Benders, with Verses, a provocative collection of poetry that explores the trials, turmoil, and triumph of the Black Male experience in America. Eric demonstrates once again his broad range as a storyteller and offers up a collection that reflects his coming of age in New York City amid high crime, strong racial divides, and tragic unjustified shootings.  Influenced by such legends as Maya Angelou, Pablo Neruda, and Langston Hughes, Eric shares his pain and frustration with the world around him.  While some of his words may have been born years ago, readers will find that sadly little has changed in the landscape of America and for her Black Men.  These selections stand as a testament to the lives still impacted by a cultural history we have yet to break free from as a country.
