UI Press To Publish Detainee Poetry Collection

From The Guardian, 2/26/07:
Poetry's capacity to rattle governments is not, it appears, confined to totalitarian regimes. A collection of poems by detainees at the US military base in Guantánamo Bay is to be published later this year, but only in the face of strong opposition by suspicious American censors.

The collection, entitled Poems from Guantánamo: The Detainees Speak, will be published in August by the University of Iowa Press, with an afterword written by Ariel Dorfman.
