Heroes Without Capes 

  Request this author
Heroes without Capes is about the classic struggle against daunting obstacles and how we reach deep down to discover our own heroic natures. Within this collection of dramatic monologues and narrative poems, you'll meet famous and infamous figures from history, myth and pop culture who show varying degrees of heroism and loneliness. Former North Carolina Poet Laureate Joseph Bathanti says, "These poems by Alice Osborn-a number of them wonderfully hybrid and distinctive in form-draw a steady bead on heroes and the heroic and, within that malleable context, the anti-hero as well. Heroes without Capes deftly imagines a hierarchy where the fanciful as well as the mundane are rendered not only heroic, but mythic. The language is tough, sanguine, funny and, above all, memorable."

"Why isn't my state listed?"
