Talking Volumes: Talking Race with Reginald Dwayne Betts
Felon tells the story of one man in fierce, dazzling poems- canvassing his wide range of emotions and experiences through homelessness, underemployment, love, drug abuse, domestic violence, fatherhood, and grace- and, in doing so, creates a travelogue for an imagined life.
Author Reginald Dwayne Betts confronts the funk of post-incarceration existence and examines prison not as a static space, but as a force that enacts pressure throughout a person’s life. Challenging the complexities of language, Betts animates what it means to be a “felon.”
