Antebellum Dream Book PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Antebellum Dream Book free pdf In surprising turns through different American cities, mindsets, and eras, and through the strange rhythms of dreaming, the celebrated poet Elizabeth Alexander composes her own kind of improvisational jazz. "Antebellum Dream Book" offers a music of resistances as well as soaring flights of fancy: the conflicts of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and after- a mother's struggle to see through a postpartum fog- a vision in which the poet takes on the narrative voice of Muhammad Ali. "The New York Times Book Review" has said that "Alexander creates intellectual magic in poem after poem." In this stunning collection, she furthers her reputation as a vital and vivid poetic voice keenly attuned to our ideas of race, gender, politics, and motherhood.
