Description:
From one of America s most celebrated poets, Nikki Giovanni, comes this poignant collection of poetry that celebrates the simple pleasures of everyday life and the bonds we share with those closest to us. This slim volume delights on every page. There are stories, imaginings, whimsy, and startling images which prove the poet s power and her command of language . . . Anyone with a love of language will be delighted with this book and the continuing publication of America s treasured poet. San Francisco Book ReviewThe poetry of Nikki Giovanni has spurred movements and inspired songs, turned hearts and informed generations. She's been hailed as a healer and as a national treasure. But Giovanni's heart resides in the everyday, where family and lovers gather, friends commune, and those no longer with us are remembered. And at every gathering there is food food as sustenance, food as aphrodisiac, food as memory. A pot of beans is flavored with her mother's sighs this sigh part cardamom, that one the essence of clove; a lover requests a banquet as an affirmation of ongoing passion; homage is paid to the most time-honored appetizer: soup.With Chasing Utopia, Giovanni demands that the prosaic flowers, birdsong, winter be seen as poetic, and reaffirms once again why she is as energetic, 'remarkable' (Gwendolyn Brooks), 'wonderful' (Marian Wright Edelman),'outspoken, prolific, energetic' (New York Times), and relevant as ever.'
