Description:
19th Poet Laureate of the United States A powerful, beautifully crafted book. The Washington Post Ripe with the perfidies and paradoxes of thralldom both personal and public, it is utterly elegant. Elle Charting the intersections of public and personal history, Thrallexplores the historical, cultural, and social forces that determine the roles to which a mixed-race daughter and her white father are consigned. In a brilliant series of poems about the taxonomies of mixed unions, Natasha Trethewey creates a fluent and vivid backdrop to her own familial predicament. While tropes about captivity, bondage, knowledge, and enthrallment permeate the collection, Trethewey unflinchingly examines our shared past by reflecting on her history of small estrangements and by confronting the complexities of race and the deeply ingrained and unexamined notions of racial difference in America. Natasha Trethewey sThrallis simply the finest work of her already distinguished career . . . Rarely has any poetic intersection of cultural and personal histories felt more inevitable, more painful, or profound. David St. John, author ofThe Face: A Novella in Verse A voice that not only expands the position of [poetry], but helps us better understand ourselves. Her poems tell stories of loss and reckoning, both personal and historical. Dr. James Billington, Librarian of Congress'
