THE DEATH OF SITTING BEAR New and Selected Poems

by | Read by N. Scott Momaday

Poetry & Drama • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Listening to N. Scott Momaday's deep, rumbling voice is the perfect way to experience his beautiful, accessible poetry. Throughout, he reflects on his Kiowa heritage, humanity's relationship to nature, and the power of language, narrating in a resonant voice, both powerful and familiar. His diction is exacting, making every word shine, but his narration is never distant; he speaks like a beloved elder, with both reverence and playfulness. The audiobook contains three sections. In the first, a series of formal poems, often rhyming, explores nature, aging, travel, and history. The second section is a series of beautiful haikus--keen observations of ordinary moments. The third section features the titular poem, in which Momaday celebrates the life of Sitting Bear, an honored Kiowa warrior. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2020]
