Summary

A stunning new gift edition of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize winnerin poetry.Featuring a CD of the poems read by the author.Natasha Trethewey's elegant, elegiac third collection,''Native Guard'', was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 2007. This deeply personal volume brings together two legacies of the Deep South. It is a moving testimonial to the Louisiana Native Guards, a Black regiment who played a forgotten role in the Civil War. At the same time, the poems also pay loving tribute to the memory of the author's mother, whose marriage to a white man in the 1960s was still illegal in her native Mississippi. Includedin this beautifully redesigned gift edition is an audio CD of the poems read by the author-a lovely gift for any enthusiast of finely crafted verse.
