I read this over two days and most of the poems several times over The blurbs on the back point out her elegiac verse that honors her mother and father Another blurb states Trethewey serves our profound need for that rare thing artistically fine Civil War poetry Sure there's elegies and a few may include the Civil War as a backdrop but these poems are so much They are some of the most deeply American poems I've read But even they evoked a sense of what it means to be human to be alive with struggle and to desire the penetration of the soul by empathy and understanding from others I lost my mother a couple of years ago after a long illness It's caused me to steer clear of books on loss I honestly didn't know this book was going to deal with Trethewey's loss of her own mother I wasn't expecting nor wanting to identify with someone else's loss But it happened And the identifying didn't cause an emotional response necessarily but it did force me to remember that day and the forcing in the end turned out to be just what I needed MythI was asleep while you were dyingIt’s as if you slipped through some rift a hollowI make between my slumber and my waking the Erebus I keep you in still tryingnot to let go You’ll be dead again tomorrowbut in dreams you live So I try taking you back into morning Sleep heavy turningmy eyes open I find you do not followAgain and again this constant forsaking Again and again this constant forsakingmy eyes open I find you do not followYou back into morning sleep heavy turning But in dreams you live So I try takingnot to let go You’ll be dead again tomorrowThe Erebus I keep you in—still trying— I make between my slumber and my wakingIt’s as if you slipped through some rift a hollowI was asleep while you were dyingThat's how my loss was for me I identify I empathize I know and that's why there are no limits to what a poem can do If you are at all interested in modern American poetry I couldn't recommend this highly There is a reason Trethewey has ascended to the height of Poet Laureate in the budding of her career This short book of poems is not the trite blurbs on the back these poems illustrate what it means to be an American to suffer loss only to overcome in the end

Natasha Trethewey's Native Guard is I swear one of the BEST collections of poetry I have read in a long timeThis collection is seemingly simple The language is clear stripped down and imagistic The narratives are straightforward and very easy to follow especially for those who don't read much poetry because it is hard to understand But for those who LOVE poetry and understand it Native Guard is virtually flawless Each poem is layered in so many different ways one could read the book straight through in 45 minutes and be pleased with the read But if one rereads it again and again the layers start shedding in terms of form fixed form line breaks manuscript organization response to New Criticisms etc etc etc The formal poetry is so veiled by the gorgeous language that I almost didn't even realize it was written in form How I've longed to be able to pull off that trickThis book is a throw back to older contemporary poetry in the good way It has that pure honest integrity of Sharon Olds Jane Kenyon and dare I say Robert Bly In other words Native Guard is sincerely unpretentious It's not full of experimentation for the sake of experimentation It's a collection of poetry that is simple in the complex sense of word not at all complicated to be complicated I wholehearted recommend Native Guard to poetry readers and non poetry readers Its poems about loss history the South race religion and humanity are accessible yet exceptionally well crafted This book clearly deserved to win a Pulitzer Prize and I'm excited to see what Trethewey will do in the future The gems in this collection Photograph Ice Storm 1971 Myth Scenes From A Documentary History of Mississippi Native Guards and Southern History
