It is an honor and a pleasure to introduce Tiffany Troy’s portfolio of literary criticism. As an avid reader of reviews and literary essays, I can say with confidence that is rare to see such an artful balance of critical rigor and generosity of spirit. Ms. Troy’s literary criticism is marked by a remarkable clarity with respect to the relationship between craft and affect, poetic technique and larger claims about culture and philosophy, and of course, literary citizenship and social justice.
Tiffany Troy is a poet, translator, and critic. Based in Flushing, Queens, her poems revolve around her dreams and the dreams she carries. She is the assistant translation editor of Columbia Journal.
