Leslie Marmon Silko : Ceremony, Almanac of the Dead, Gardens in the Dunes Hardback

Edited by David L. (University of Montana, USA) Moore

Part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Contemporary North American Fiction series

Description

A major American writer at the turn of this millennium, Leslie Marmon Silko has also been one of the most powerful voices in the flowering of Native American literature since the publication of her 1977 novel Ceremony.

With chapters written by leading scholars of Native American literature, this guide explores Silko's major novels Ceremony, Almanac of the Dead and Gardens in the Dunes as an entryway into the full body of her work that includes poetry, essays, short fiction, film, photography, and other visual artwork. In addition to placing Silko in the broad context of American literary history, the book serves to contextualize her pivotal role in unleashing the vast flood of other Native American, aboriginal, and Indigenous writers who have entered the conversations she helped to launch.

Along the way, the book examines her tackling of such historical themes as land, ethnicity, race, gender, trauma, and healing, as well as her narrative forms and her mythic lyricism.
