Sinopsis: Blues Baby: Early Poems brings together Harryette Mullen's first book, Tree Tall Woman, with previously uncollected poems from the beginning of her career. Her early poems draw inspiration from the feminist and Black Arts movements, as well as her connections to diverse communities of writers and artists. The movement of this volume is loosely autobiographical -- from childhood narratives to poems about sexuality to indirect evocations of the poet's art. Many of the poems address the subject of family and community, often emphasizing the strength of women and female friendship; some evoke culturally specific traditions and locations; others of a satiric nature offer cultural critiques.
About the Author: Born in Alabama, Harryette Mullen grew up in Texas, and has lived in New Mexico, New York, and California. She currently teaches African American literature, American poetry, and creative writing courses at UCLA.
