Soul Make a Path Through Shouting  (paperback)
Cyrus Cassells

Enriched by his own world travels, Cassells draws with equal ease from Greek mythology, children's rhymes, and African-American oral traditions. The result is an hypnotic and rhapsodic interweaving of dramatic narratives forming a single whole.

For Soul Make a Path Through Shouting, Cyrus Cassells


"Cassells' writing strikes a balance between exquisite language and an empathy for anyone who is forced to suffer... Like Pasternak, Cassells excels at merging a sleeping landscape with a moment of crisis."—Publishers Weekly

"The most spectacular book I've seen in years."—Rita Dove

"The language [in Soul Make a Path Through Shouting] is indeed exquisite, but is infused with a spirituality and compassion that lifts it far beyond the realm of aesthetic niceties."—Martin Espada

"... a spectacular black and gay perspective on human tragedy."—Feminist Bookstore News

"Unflinching in its examinations of the Holocaust and AIDS, remarkable in its challenge to preconceived notions of triumph and survival, this book is a virtuoso performance."—Lambda Book Report

"Poet Cyrus Cassells' verse is often deceptively delicious."—St. Louis Post Dispatch
