A feel of Regard, says Laura McCullough, “is an attempt to assemble the voices of dwelling poets and students in considerate and regarded exfoliation of the present confluence of poetry and race, the problems, the nuances, the unexamined, the dreaded, the questions, and the quarrels throughout aesthetic camps and biases.”

The individuals speak about matters as numerous as their very own varied racial and ethnic backgrounds. Their essays, which variety standard from the private and lyrical to the serious, are prepared into 4 wide groupings: Americanism, the adventure of unsilencing and crossing borders, interrogating whiteness, and language itself. To learn them is to hear in because the participants converse what they comprehend, realize what they don't, and within the technique usually locate anything new in themselves and their subject. As a reader you're invited, says McCullough, “to be moved from one feel of regard to a different: to be provoked and to linger in that kingdom. . . . to question, quarrel, and consider.”
