Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 1997 White Pine Press Poetry Prize, the poetry of Jacqueline Joan Johnson has appeared in numerous journals and magazines. Reviewer Maurice Kenny writes, "Johnson's collection holds not only the spirit and sensuous quality of Alabama but also the concrete strengths of Brooklyn. Ms. Johnson's lush language has the texture of quince and the durability of earth. These memorable poems are sturdy reminders of what life in contemporary America is".

Synopsis:

Third winner of the annual White Pine Press Poetry Prize. Selected by renowned Native American poet Maurice Kenny.

Synopsis:

Poetry. "Here is the poetry of proclamation and purification. Jacqueline Johnson claims not only language but also the ground beneath her feet. She gives birth to herself and restores her own memory. I believe this poet comes out of the stars. She reminds us why the sky is so beautiful and African American literature so rich. Johnson asks a very important question which must be answered: 'Where does a black woman go for freedom?'"-E. Ethelbert Miller.
