Architecture of Address by Jake Adam York
Book DescriptionThe Architecture of Address traces the evolution of an American species of lyric capable of public pronouncement without polemic. Beginning with Whitman, Jake Adam York seeks to describe a kind of poem wherein the most ambitious poets--including Hart Crane and Robert Lowell--occupy and reconstruct important public spaces. This study argues that American poets become civic actors when their poems imagine and reconstruct the conceptual architecture of the monument.

Murmuration of Starlings, Paperback (April 2008)
This collection of poetry elegizes the martyrs of the civil rights movement, whose names are inscribed on the stone table of the Civil Rights Memorial in Montgomery, Alabama. Individually, Jake Adam York's poems are elegies for individuals; collectively, they consider the violence of a racist culture and the determination to resist that racism.
