Date, Time & Location
About the Event
Pulitzer Prize winner and celebrated American master N. Scott Momaday returns to CW with this radiant collection of more than 200 new and selected poems. Momaday says, “The poems in this book reflect my deep respect for and appreciation of words. . . . I believe that poetry is the highest form of verbal expression. Although I have written in other forms, I find that poems are what I want and need most to read and write. They give life to my mind.” This luminous collection demonstrates Momaday’s mastery and love of language and the matters closest to his heart. To Momaday, words are sacred; language is power. Spanning nearly fifty years, the poems gathered here illuminate the human condition, Momaday’s connection to his Kiowa roots, and his spiritual relationship to the American landscape. The Death of Sitting Bear evokes the essence of human experience and speaks to us all.
