FROST, Jackqueline
Young Americans

Young Americans by Jackqueline Frost is a poetry collection that conjures a present teeming with the decadent violence of the confederate South.

The book is a narrative of becoming in the wartime petroleum landscape of southern Louisiana. Faulknerian in its themes and in its taste for the baroque, Frost’s lyric explores the melancholy of ‘belonging to the enormous bliss of American death’ in places where one must ‘learn what love is from what it is not.’
