"My poetry is a teaching tool. It forces mankind to confront the consequences resulting from their decisions and to face the snubbed realities of today’s “everyman”.


Background Information

Author Exposes Nocturnal Voices Through Poetry and Verse

 “LISTEN”, by author Shirley Howard Hall,

  Forward by Constance Stadler, Phd.

 

“Listen”, takes a reader deep into the conscientious of the socially, economically, and culturally challenged of the world. Confronting the communal stigmas of not fitting in, “LISTEN” is a first person journey into the poignant lives of those who fail to flourish in today’s society.  In this collection of poems the author compels us to look at the mistreated and enslaved. Hopeless and helpless, abused and disenfranchised, their stories scrolled ticker tape style across the bottom of our screens. The author forces us to acknowledge and at times concede to the darkness that masks their faces.

LISTEN
“From ethics to eros, Shirley Hall's poetry has an edge that sharply dissects the dilemmas of contemporary life. Hers is the voice of the prophet crying out for social justice; the voice of a compassionate human being seeking basic decency and dignity. More than mere entertainment and aesthetic experience, Hall's compositions provide insight and instruction, and are guaranteed to make your spirit sing.” Lance Strate Prof. of Communication and Media Studies Fordham University, New York ------ “...a spokesperson for others - brave at voicing wrongs - her poems have a courage behind them, a tongue free to unleash a fury…words that dig deep into ones soul. Marvelous!” Aine MacAodha Author: Where the Three Rivers Meet Omagh Ireland ------ “...a book for everyone who cares for the human condition and treasures the beauty of the word. A must read. ~ LISTEN… and learn” Constance Stadler, Ph.D Author: Tinted Steam, Sublunary Curse Washington DC / Virginia ------ “...poems that are moving, intelligent and thought provoking… she defines the essence of my group. A book you’ll read again and again” Joe Sting Cup of Coffee Networkers
