“Confer writes from the heart and doesn’t spare the arrows aimed at piercing any government or individual tendency toward violence, be it personal or national. He also writes from a basis of credibility, having worked as a carpenter, volunteer in an African village, teacher, civil rights lobbyist for the Quakers, and organizer of work camps for many hundreds of youth, including some to rebuild arson-burnt black churches. His poetry is not the smooth, varnished style of many established poets; Confer’s poetry is rougher, less finished, but with the sturdiness and strength of fresh-hewn oak.”
