Staff Reviews


Well versed in storytelling and in song, newly seated U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo's collection, The Woman Who Fell From the Sky, re-envisions creation myths and homespun narratives. Using chant-like lyric and a psaltery-style incantation, Harjo revels in a poetry that becomes both praise and celebration, for the indigenous peoples she calls her own kin, and for those people's spirited landscape she as if sings light down upon.

— Ray Marsocci

Description


She draws from the Native American tradition of praising the land and the spirit, the realities of American culture, and the concept of feminine individuality.
