Colorado Review Reviews MFA Faculty H. L. Hix’s American Anger
Scott Wordsman, at the Colorado Review, writes the following about FDU MFA Poetry and Literary Translation faculty member H. L. Hix’s American Anger: “What makes this piece satisfying and rhetorically successful extends beyond Hix’s diction and wit; what flatters is the poet’s unerring command over his subject matter.” Wordsman describes American Anger as “both a formidable work of art and a verifiable piece of protest.” Read more at the Colorado Review.
