Joy Harjo, former U.S. poet laureate, narrates 50 vignettes that offer a glimpse of the wellsprings that have sustained her writing passion for decades. She is strongly influenced by her Native American heritage and the counterculture movement of the 1960s. A musician as well, Harjo often equates poetry with music, and her voice has the same resonant quality that she admires in music. Her vignettes are sometimes lyrical, sometimes abstract, and her measured pacing affords time to ponder and absorb her meaning. Sometimes, the listener can hear a smile on her face. Her wide-ranging topics include language, Native American history, music, and human nature, among others. Listeners will discover greater appreciation for the power of words, music, dance, and Harjo's generous spirit and Native worldview. L.T. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2023]
