Book by Nelson Marilyn


"Rooted in the basic soil of redemptive imagination, the voices in Nelson's poems seek a lyrical foothold in our daily lives. Her words teach us how to praise ourselves by praising each other."-Yusef Komunyakaa Praise for the poetry of Marilyn Nelson "Nelson re-creates vanished worlds of African American history, tracing her family's odyssey from slavery times to the establishment of a 'homeplace' in Oklahoma. . . . [She] joins thematic strains from her five previous collections in an almost seamless unity. Concerns with family and origin interlock perfectly with an encompassing meditation on morality and religion. . . . The poems of The Fields of Praise will stick in the reader's memory a long time."-Minneapolis Star-Tribune "Nelson has made something new and, at the same time, demonstrated that the old makes a strong base on which to build. . . . In tone, this book is matter-of-factly stoical, but it will not stand for injustice. . . . It believes, in the end, in the 'power of words.'"-Georgia Review "Poignant, powerful, and disquieting by turns, this varied collection . . . contains much memorable food for reflection."-Christianity and Literature "'Double vision' is a strength of Nelson's work in more than a cultural context: it grounds her understanding of the mutual sources of erotic and spiritual longing, of the ways the universe reveals its workings in quotidian perceptions."-Women's Review of Books
