The Woman Who Fell From the Sky: Poems.
by [Native American Poetry] Harjo, Joy.

Publisher Information:
Norton, New York: 1994.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine, price clipped dust jacket. In this collection, Harjo works with a diction and a syntax that seem deliberately plain and declarative. She invokes ancient Native American myth, often from the midst of ordinary contemporary places such as Brooklyn, N.Y.; Washington, D.C.; and Chicago's O'Hare airport. Her myths endow everyday experience with a transformative meaning that rescues Harjo's characters from their sometimes isolating individuality. Yet the myths also heed the details of individual experience as ``the single complicated human becomes a wave of humanness.''
