    Not since I found Frank Stanford have I enjoyed poetry this much The straight forward honest persona that Daniels has crafted in this book including Digger was masterfully done The book would be an easy read for non poets but still offers plenty to study

    This has one of my all time favorite poems in it Short Order CookHere have this vivid memory I'm in high school and this poem pops up in an anthology Everyone in my AP English Class was confused and hated this poem but I loved it Also when we discovered I was the only person in the class who'd worked fast food These two things are relatedI still love this poem and Jim Daniels definitely is a working man's poet Nobody writes poems about factory work like he does

    This is a collection of poetry written from the perspective of a lowerworking class man living through the collapse of DetroitJim Daniels is famous for his series of poems concerning an auto worker in Detroit known as Digger which this collection is heavy with There is a heavy feeling throughout the book of oppressive depression caused by station in life I admit that for me there are some poems in this collection that are difficult to read because of the empathetic response it inspiresOverall a great collection of poetry which can be fully appreciated by anyone and an even better introduction to the over all work of Jim Daniels

Places/Everyone (Brittingham Prize in Poetry (Series).) ➳ [Reading] ➶ Places/Everyone (Brittingham Prize in Poetry (Series).) By Jim Daniels ➩ – Larringtonlifecoaching.co.uk     Jim Daniels in his first book of poems draws upon his experiences in living and working in his native Detroit to present a start realistic picture of urban blue collar life  Daniels his broth     Jim Daniels in his first book of poems draws upon his experiences in living and working in his native Detroit to present a start realistic picture of urban blue collar life  Daniels his brothers his father and his grandfather have all worked in the auto industry and that background seeps into nearly all these poems    The first of the book’s three sections sketches out this background then moves into a neighborhood full of people whose lives are so linked to the ups and downs of the auto industry that they have to struggle to find their own lives; in Still Lives in Detroit Daniels writes There’s a man in this picture  No one can find him  The second section contains the Digger poems a series on the lives of a Detroit auto worker and his family which tries to capture the effects of the work on life outside the factory  Here we listen to Digger think dream wander on psychological journeys while he moves through his routines shoveling the snow mowing the lawn and so forth  In section three the poems move into the workplace whether that be a liuor store a hamburger joint or a factory    These poems sometimes dark sometimes humorous concentrate on the efforts of workers to rise above the often depressing work of blue collar or minimum wage jobs to salvage some pride and dignity  The poems in this book try to give a voice to those who are often shut out of poetry  They are important  These lives are important and the poems than anything say that.
