About this title


Book by Aldan, Daisy


Day of the Wounded Eagle focuses on the story of a relationship between 50-year old Mila and poet Gabriel, 28; it illustrates their struggles with life and each other. In the book, young Gabriel lusts after his poetry teacher one season in Greece. He tries to compromise his own emotional feelings - somewhat in an Oedipal way - as he understudies the art of creative writing from the "Grand Dame " Mila. As action rises in the story, we watch both characters mature. Author Aldan skillfully blends rich images both in poetry and prose. Figurative language dots the illustrated novel. A scene of the children torturing a wounded eagle later resurfaces when Mila gives Gabriel a poem by poet Steffen to translate. "It was a poem which told of being wounded. Every wound has a meaning," Steffen penned, "through which exists the possibility of resurrection." The Daisy Aldan book, the second novel in a trilogy about Mila and Gabriel, looks at philosophy and spiritual aspects of life. It will appeal to academic and literary audiences. One glaring flaw: editing and publisher oversights such as extra spaces between words; duplicate words; and a few awkward sentence structures. -- From Independent Publisher
