Seven Hands, Seven Hearts: Prose and Poems

by

Seven Hands, Seven Hearts: Prose and Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Seven Hands, Seven Hearts includes the entirety of Elizabeth Woody's highly acclaimed first book of poems, Hand into Stone — winner of the American Book Award — as well as new poems, stories, and essays. The work is united by common themes: a rootedness in the Northwest landscape, the histories of her ancestors, and the ongoing struggle to define what it means to be a tribal member, an American, and a woman at the end of the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

"Her poems are like hands and hearts and also like lights: they grip and pulse and illuminate. Like the woman herself, the work is grand and modest and forceful. It will shake you, and move you deeply."--The Bloomsbury Review "Woody follows in the tradition of peoples who have understood the power of language, and the place of a poet/singer/storyteller at the center of the world."-- Joy Harjo

About the Author

Woody works at Ecotrust in Portland, Oregon, and is enrolled in the Hatfield School of Government at Portland State University.
