People still heed the cry to “Remember the Alamo!”, especially in San Antonio, Texas, but they may be starting to remember it differently.
According to Robert Bonazzi, Floyd Collins’ new poetry collection What Harvest: Poems on the Siege & Battle of the Alamo imbues all sides of the conflict with the humanity missing from nineteenth-century reports of the massacre, which highlighted the alleged cruelty of General Santa Anna. Some of these poems focus on people, while others focus on pertinent events or objects, like a famous duel or a long rifle. The book is available through Somondoco Press.
Bonazzi seems impressed with What Harvest, calling it “the finest poetry ever written about the Alamo.”
