Dark. Sweet. offers readers the sweep of LindaHogan's work—environmental and spiritual concerns, her Chickasaw heritage—in spare, elemental, visionary language.

From "Those Who Thunder":

Those who thunder
have dark hair
and red throw rugs.
They burn paper in bathroom sinks.
Their voices refuse to suffer
and their silences know the way
straight to the heart;
it's bus route number eight.

Split This Rock Recommended Poetry Books of 2014

Praise for Linda Hogan

“Her poetry is deeply engaged with nature and personal experience; I loved its lyricism and its emotional engagement."Rosemary and Reading Glasses

"Linda Hogan is essential, a mighty and bedrock voice in American letters. Any book by her is cause for celebration, but this volume should cause outbreaks of dancing. Brilliant." ―Luis Urrea

"Linda Hogan's poetry has always been a medicine of sort . . . These poems in particular cross over to speak for us in the shining world. They bring back words for healing, the distilled truth of all these stories that are killing us with tears and laughter." ―Joy Harjo

"Linda Hogan's vision is breathtaking: the embryonic fingers of a fetal whale, the imperial walk of a raven, the torn-cloth dresses of her Chickasaw ancestors, are distilled in these pages into a critique of human survival. The Book of Medicine feels like a gift from the earth's entire past to the present moment." ―Barbara Kingsolver

“A 400-page collection celebrating women, spirituality, justice, and peace.”Santa Barbara Independent

“Despite the pain, loss, and frustration that percolate through her poetry, what’s so remarkable about Dark. Sweet. is the palpable optimism and unceasing call to change. This is a poet deeply in love with humanity and the natural world, who projects a hopeful vision of the future. . .” Cleaver Magazine

"Linda Hogan's often prayer-like poems evoke liminality, speaking from blurred boundaries of animal and human, self and other, but it is the constant interpenetration of the sacred and mundane, which poet-theorist Jennifer Gosetti-Ferencei calls "the ecstatic quotidian," that sets Linda Hogan's work on a plane of its own." ―World Literature Today

"Hogan's poetry is most compelling in its refusal: refusing to tell you what you expect, what you want to hear. Her speakers refuse to play to cultural tropes."―The Volta
