At one point in her memoir, Harjo recalls the moment she learned that poetry could serve her in her Native identity; she writes, “the English language was pleased to occupy new forms.” This book definitely felt like a new form to me! I wasn‘t sure I liked it at first. It felt disjointed as she skipped between memory, family history, dreams, poems, songs, short stories, & visions. But it wasn‘t disjointed. Just new. After settling in, I LOVED it.

It‘s not specifically about their drinking afternoons at the Ritz, that‘s just a narrative thread to pull it together.
It‘s a good synopsis of the rebellious (for the time) nature and thinking of Plath and Sexton. I enjoyed it, if you‘re a bit obsessed with either of them you will know a lot of the detail- but there are some good additional anecdotes and thoughts.
Thank you Paula 😘

squirrelbrain Sounds interesting! 1mo

This memoir as my introduction to Joy Harjo, the first Native American poet laureate. I really enjoyed how she wove poetry into this story of her early life. She has a second memoir that I‘m definitely reading. #nonfictionnovember

Collected Poems | Robert Bly
post image

Robert Bly, Leaping Poet, has died. Writes J. Hirshfield: his “works carry lanterns of bioluminescent perception & hold music alchemical and chthonic, the heart's broken-open suffering and radiance.“
--It is a cold and snowy night. The main street is deserted.
The only things moving are swirls of snow.
As I lift the mailbox door, I feel its cold iron.
There is a privacy I love in this snowy night.
Driving around, I will waste more time. RB

I searched my gr list again for today‘s book to highlight for the #thriller #scarathlon #photochallenge; the tagged book by Carol Shields! It‘s a literary thriller - recommended.

The photo here is not related to the book. Me being silly.

DivineDiana Love your photo! 🙂 3mo
