Frozen by Fire A Documentary in Verse of the Triangle Factory Fire of 1911

By Donald Kentop

Memory is the mother of the muses, and Donald Kentop's FROZEN BY FIRE is an important act of remembrance. The particularity of character and line, the complex resonance of the story told lend this book a grave beauty. A documentary, yes - but one transmuted by art. -- David Mason, Colorado Poet Laureate, author of LUDLOW, A VERSE-NOVEL
