From The Washington Post Book World

The poetry in this first-of-its-kind anthology shows that the deaf can compensate literarily for hearing problems, that rhythm and inspiration can flourish in the absence of hearing. Thus Robert E. Panara writes of how “written words can thrill the inner ear” and of how through reading and writing he can hear not only conventional sounds, like “the lover’s sigh, the thrumming of guitar,” but also, “if I choose, the rustle of a star!” Also included are essays, fiction, drama and an introduction arguing that the tragedy of deafness has little to do with the inability to hear and much to do with the marginal and stigmatized position of deaf people in an unaccommodating and aggressively hearing world.

Jill Jepson, Ph.D., is a professor of English at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
