The poems of Myrtle Span are mirrors of her life. She was raised among ten hungry brothers and sisters and educated in a one-room shack. Married at age sixteen, she has eight living children who have surpassed her academically: Two of them are college educated. With the civil rights movement came her politicization, and she is an active champion of justice for poor and minority-group people. She has been jailed for demonstrating against hunger, job discrimination, unfair housing practices, and police brutality in her native Arizona. She makes her living from the land: twenty-seven acres that she owns and farms. The Deprived, but the Prudent is her first published work.
