There is a kind of book - a genre if you will - that has become popular in the post-Roots era: using historical events and documents (letters, journals, diaries, memoirs) in any number of imaginative ways and combinations, the author links him- or herself to those events as a way of locating the self within that history as well as illuminting the present. Gary Gildner's Letters From Vicksburg, William Heyen's Erika: Poems of the Holocaust, Angela Peckinpaugh's Letters from Lee's Army, and W. D. Snodgrass' The Fuhrer Bunker come to mind as recent examples. Now comes Jill Breckenridge's remarkable collection of poetry and prose, CivdBlood, a sustained account of the fascinating lives and stories of John Cabell Breckinridge the Civil War general who served as Vice-President under James Buchanan (1857-1861) and who won more electoral votes than Step',en Douglas in the 1860 presidential election which gave us Lincoln, -and Breckinridge's lifetime friend and personal slave, Jacob. Dramatic monologues, lyrics, diary and journal entries-both imagined and real -combine to present a collage of voices and experiences. In the hands of a lesser artist, CivilBlood might be cold, statistical reportage and transcription; but in Breckenridge's skilled hands, the book guides us through the horrors of this shameful period of our history by focusing on the personal lives of those who are at once at the periphery and core of the events. Culminating eight years of research, Civil Blood weaves national history, farnily history, and personal history into a poetic drama that unfolds before us, reading more like a novel than a thematic collection of poems. The history is alive; the characters are real, warm, passionate. Civil Bloodshould set the standard for anyone attempting to work in this difficult, demanding, and treacherous genre. As we have come to expect, Milkweed Editions has presented Breckenridge's powerful story within an attractive format, including more than fifty original engravings by R. W. Sholes. The sturdy and reliable Bembo Boldface type works well here. Highly recommended to all libraries. -- From Independent Publisher
