Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Joy Harjo

Poetry & Drama • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Most poets mine their own experiences and their histories, and Joy Harjo is no exception. In this audiobook she brings to life many of the stories, songs, and traditions of her Muscogee and Cherokee ancestors. Her poetry can fairly be called polemical in its intention, but it is also deeply human, working in ranges of experience that many listeners may have been fortunate enough to avoid. Her reading is clear, and clearly impassioned, expressing the considerable emotional depth of the poetry and commentary. The title poem is a particular treasure, and Harjo shows in this collection why she is a worthy choice as our current poet laureate. D.M.H.
