Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: IN Julia Kasdorf's poem "Mennonites, " she writes of her heritage and her people: "We keep our quilts in closets and do not dance./We hoe thistles along fence rows for fear/we may not be perfect as our Heavenly Father./We clean up his disasters. No one has to/call." Persecuted by Protestants and Catholics alike throughout history and largely misunderstood by the rest of the world, Mennonites have found it difficult to make their voices heard or respected. It is with a kind of true necessity, then, that an anthology of poetry, compiled by Ann Hostetler, a Mennonite poet herself, has finally emerged, possessing the potential to both challenge and correct our preconceived notions of this unique religious and cultural group. In this surprising collection, twenty-four Mennonite poets, both men and women, young and old, confront issues of identity, sexuality, religious doctrine, family, and individuality, sometimes with doubt and sorrow but always with candor and urgency. Often, their struggle to breakfree of rigid patterns, to maintain the integrity of individual experience while honoring the will of the community, speaks to an earnest desire to marry change with tradition. These poems poignantly grapple with contradiction and compromise, the unavoidable components of a made world. Ranging in tone from elegy to satire, the poems in A Cappella explore the tension between the artist's individual view and the power of a communal vision to mold and shape its members. A critical introduction to the volume defines the context of Mennonite poetry, and a concluding history of Mennonite poetry in North America provides a valuable resource for students and scholars. Each poet is also individuallyintroduced by a brief biographical essay. A Cappella is a valuable addition to any collection of poetry. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Available November 2003 In Julia Kasdorf's poem “Mennonites,” she writes of her heritage and her people: “We keep our quilts in closets and do not dance. / We hoe thistles along fence rows for fear / we may not be perfect as our Heavenly Father. / We clean up his disasters. No one has to / call.”

Persecuted by Protestants and Catholics alike throughout history and largely misunderstood by the rest of the world, Mennonites have found it difficult to make their voices heard or respected. It is with a kind of true necessity, then, that an anthology of poetry, compiled by Ann Hostetler, a Mennonite poet herself, has finally emerged; possessing the potential to be both challenging to and corrective of our preconceived notions of this unique religious and cultural group.

In this surprising collection, twenty-four Mennonite poets, both men and women, young and old, confront issues of identity, sexuality, religious doctrine, family, and individuality, sometimes with doubt and sorrow, but always with candor and urgency. Often, their struggle to break free of rigid patterns, to maintain the integrity of individual experience, while simultaneously honoring the will of the community, speaks to an earnest desire to marry change with tradition. These poems poignantly grapple with contradiction and compromise, the unavoidable components of a made world.

Ranging in tone from elegy to satire, the poems in A Cappella explore the tension between the artist's individual view and the power of a communal vision to mold and shape its members. A critical introduction to the volume defines the context of Mennonite poetry, and a concluding history of Mennonite poetry in North America provides a valuable resource for students and scholars. Each poet is also individually introduced by a brief biographical essay.

With its panoply of well-crafted poems, A Cappella is a valuable addition to any collection of poetry, Mennonite and non-Mennonite alike.

Inhaltsangabe: Persecuted by Protestants and Catholics alike throughout history and largely misunderstood by the rest of the world, Mennonites have found it difficult to make their voices heard or respected. In this anthology however, 24 poets challenge our assumptions and confront issues from identity to God.
