9780930100339: The Invisible Musician

Young Bear draws heavily upon ancient traditions while creating dramatic versions of the harshness of modern tribal life, the Vietnam War, and exploitation of the land. At the same time, images from nature, such as the kingfisher or the eagle, reflect the human condition. Includes original Mesquakie songs translated by the author.

From Library Journal:

"Each variation has a meaning" writes Young Bear in his first book-length collection of verse since Winter of the Salamander ( LJ 9/15/80). In these new poems, variations are woven with myth and symbol, dream and ceremony, as well as with the mundane, the everyday struggle to survive. "Perplexity should be expected," we are warned, and these images are often dense, difficult, and perhaps perplexing in their portrayal of a life alien to most readers: that of contemporary Native Americans. With repeated readings, Young Bear's words become richer and increasingly accessible, and he succeeds admirably in sharing both the sacred and the profane of his life. Hard winters and sequined dancers contrast with TV dinners, Hitchcock, and strawberry sundaes at the Tastee Freeze--but always with hope and humor, with the desire to look beyond violence and despair. Highly recommended.
