Leslie Marmon Silko : Ceremony, Almanac of the Dead, Gardens in the Dunes, Paperback / softback Book

Leslie Marmon Silko : Ceremony, Almanac of the Dead, Gardens in the Dunes Paperback / softback

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.

This guide, with chapters written by leading scholars of Native American literature, 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 art. These chapters map Silko's place in the broad context of American literary history.

Further, they trace her pivotal role in prompting other Indigenous writers to enter the conversations she helped to launch.

Along the way, the book engages her historical themes of land, ethnicity, race, gender, trauma, and healing, while examining her narrative craft and her mythic lyricism.
