Flashback Through The Heart: The Poetry Of Yusef Komunyakaa by Angela M. Salas (Associate Professor of English, Clarke College, Dubuque, Iowa) is a literary study of African-American poet Yusef Komunyakaa's works and of interpretations and reactions to it. In particular, author Angela M. Salas stresses the importance of a balanced perspective when taking Komunyakaa's race and the race-related themes within his poetry into account. Reading Komunyakaa solely for his views upon race diminishes the full impact of his work as surely as neglecting the role race plays in his work. A literate, knowledgeable dissection, meticulously reasoned extensively documented in its conclusions and subjective judgements.
