Alcatraz, the first winner of the Verna Emery PoetryCompetition, was selected as the best of 500 manuscripts submitted to thePurdue University Press in 1991. The collection begins with "BayCruise," a reminiscence of the author's boat tour of San Francisco Bay onthe eve of his induction physical in 1966, and ends with "Memorial,"an account of the author's visit, in 1989, during free time on a job interviewat the Kent State Campus, of the monument to the martyred students. In these poems, as in many of those that come between them,history mingles with personal history, what happened to the world with whathappened to the author. The inherent danger of such a vision is that it canlead to solipsism – to a greater concern with personal and annoyance than withpublic tragedy – but the author fights that tendency.

In “Little World,” for example, he discovers, on a snowyday, cozy in his tiny apartment, that the little blow-up globe he’s suspendedin front of his window displays funny mistakes in spelling and geography – “Shrereport”for Shreveport, Chicago out of place, cities in Texas mixed up – but hisinitial delight at the prospect of going over the whole mixed-up, made-in-HonkKong globe turns grim when he imagines the sweatshop child laborers who madethose mistakes. Similarly his chagrin at having to cool his heels in thehallway while interviewers for the college teaching job (which he’s flownacross the country at his own expense to seek) laugh and joke in their luxurysuite with their first-choice candidate is transformed into a much widerperspective on envy and misery with his encounter with desperate, homelesspeople on the street outside. In poem after poem in this collection, the bigworld impinges on the little world, forcing the author – self-involved, anxious“not to get involved” – to look up from his shoe tops, and say, as honestly ashe can, what he sees.
