pilgrims to elsewhere

I'm reading PILGRIMS TO ELSEWHERE to learn
more about poet Bob Kaufman who also plays a 
part in my sequel to ROOSEVELT. I like this passage 
from an essay in this book by Gregory Stephenson:
"Reading the work of Bob Kaufman (1925-1986)
one senses the urgent and relentless determination
of the poet to engage and put to rout the combined 
forces of Injustice and Destructiveness, Intertia 
and Illusion, and to unfurl above a liberated world
the banner of Beauty and Joy."
