Wild Blessings: The Poetry of Lucille Clifton by Hilary Holladay

In Wild Blessings, Hilary Holladay offers the first full-length study of Lucille Clifton's acclaimed poetry, drawing on a broad knowledge of the American poetic tradition and African American poetry in particular. Holladay places Clifton's poems in multiple contexts -- personal, political, and literary -- as she explicates major themes and analyzes specific works: Clifton's poems about womanhood; her fertility poems, provocatively compared with Sylvia Plath's poems on the same subject; her relation to the Black Arts Movement and to other black female poets, such as Gwendolyn Brooks and Sonia Sanchez; her biblical poems; her elegies; and her poignant family history, Generations, an extended prose poem. In addition to a new preface written after Clifton's death in 2010, this updated edition includes an epilogue that discusses the poetry collections she published after 2004.

Readers encountering Lucille Clifton's poems for the first time and those long familiar with her distinctive voice will benefit from Holladay's striking insights and her illuminating interview with the influential American poet.
