About this title

Synopsis:

These elegaic and celebratory poems have been praised for their sense of pain mingled with the desire for wholeness, for the beauty of the author's accompanying drawings, and for the compassionate final section which brings together stories of oppression around the world.

From Library Journal:

Rose is perhaps the most ritualistically oriented among American Indian poets. This is not always an advantage: fairly trite poems, put into ritualistic rhythms, at first seem more impressive than on second reading, while personal poems become weakened as emotion and experience gives way to an imposed ritual form. When ritual merges with contemporary American political consciousness, as in "Nuke Devils: the Indian women listen," Rose transforms anger into pride: "and nothing you can do/ will stop us/ as we re-make/ your weapons into charms." The book's final section represents an interesting new direction for Rose's work, as she evokes personified voicestortured social outcastswhom she finds representative of her own state.
