Citizen An American Lyric

By: Claudia Rankine (author)eBook

Description

WINNER OF THE LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE FOR POETRY
WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FOR POETRY

In this moving, critical and fiercely intelligent collection of prose poems, Claudia Rankine examines the experience of race and racism in Western society through sharp vignettes of everyday discrimination and prejudice, and longer meditations on the violence - whether linguistic or physical - which has impacted the lives of Serena Williams, Zinedine Zidane, Mark Duggan and others.

Awarded the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry in America after becoming the first book in the prize's history to be a finalist in both the poetry and criticism categories, Citizen weaves essays, images and poetry together to form a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in an ostensibly "post-race" society.
