Dragonfly Dance is a suite of poems striking for his or her candor and experience of catharsis. Writing from the vantage aspect of an American Indian ladies, Denise Lajimodiere opens a door into the lives of local women and girls. Her poems frequently mirror the deep tensions among local tradition and white culture.
mirrored in Lajimodiere's poems, lifestyles is usually appealing yet hardly effortless. "The Necklace," the narrator info how her mom repaired a favourite beaded necklace, "her arthritic palms patiently / threading beads / at the lengthy skinny needle, weaving / evening after night." while the necklace is ultimately repaired, she wears it to varsity where
At recess a White boy
ran through, yanked
it off my neck and threw it.
I watched because it ascended
high above the blacktop,
the beads glittered, scattering their light,
a rainbow opposed to grey skies.
Unadorned, direct, and sometimes uncooked, those riveting poems sear their approach into our imaginations, inviting us right into a global we would by no means have identified. we're richer for the knowledge.
