Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Praise for Marilyn Nelson "Only Marilyn Nelson can take one of the most hideous events of the twentieth century and make of it something glorious. It's a towering achievement, one whose power and anger and love will make breath catch in the throat and bring tears to the eyes." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "[Nelson's] poems are simple, sincere, and sometimes so beautiful they seem not works of artifice, but honest statements of pure, natural truths." -- School Library Journal "A powerful achievement." -- Booklist (starred review) "Ambitions in conception and meticulous in execution. Marilyn Nelson is a versatile poet, equally at home in free-verse monologues, narrative poems, and lyrics strictly formal or free-flowing." -- Betty Adcock, The Southern Review "The mostly quiet music of these poems is so lovely, so compellingly lovely, that I could not help but read them aloud -- to myself, in a room in which I might have been alone except that the poems' characters, spoken, speaking, became presences there, assuming a reality that only the best poetry achieves. This is a beautiful book." -- Kelly Cherry, The Hollins Critic. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe:

Conjuring numerous voices and characters across oceans and centuries, Faster Than Light explores widely disparate experiences through the lens of traditional poetic forms. This volume contains a selection of Marilyn Nelson's new and uncollected poems as well as work from each of her lyric histories of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century African American individuals and communities.

Poems include the stories of historical figures like Emmett Till, the fourteen-year-old boy lynched in 1955, and the inhabitants of Seneca Village, an African American community razed in 1857 for the creation of Central Park. "Bivouac in a Storm" tells the story of a group of young soldiers, later known as the Tuskegee Airmen, as they trained near Biloxi, Mississippi, "marching in summer heat / thick as blackstrap molasses, under trees / haunted by whippings." Later pieces range from the poet's travels in Africa, Europe, and Polynesia, to poems written in collaboration with Father Jacques de Foiard Brown, a former Benedictine monk and the subject of Nelson's playful fictional fantasy sequence, "Adventure-Monk!" Both personal and historical, these poems remain grounded in everyday details but reach toward spiritual and moral truths.
