About this book

This anthology of poems about Elvis invites readers to experience the connection between the historical and mythical status of The King, on the one hand, and the poetic imagery of him on the other. All Shook Up! combines history and myth and art—in the words of some of our most well–known poets and in the elegant and revealing photographs of Jon Hughes.


Contributors’ notes and comments follow the poems and serve to help the readers familiarize themselves with the poets and how they write.
