Overview

A poignant and provoking collection of poetics and commentaries. After the celebrated arrival of Cries of A Young Girl, Dawn S. Smith returns with her latest work, the dawning. While maintaining the candid expressiveness of her earlier works, Dawn supplies the valuable wisdom synonymous with growing older. Opening with the playful section, freestylin', Dawn whisks you to the most happening of juke joints with merry marvels like just that bad and lovers bend. (The artist's tribute to musical legend Ella Fitzgerald.) Once the joint has closed for the night, Dawn curiously wanders into from whence we came, where she celebrates the plight of those who struggle just to be. Bear witness to the once-secret occurrences seen and felt with sobering poems such as the slap before that and in the pen doing ten. From these painful memories and observances, together we march triumphantly into and there was light, the final trimester of this collection. The reader is inspired by the testimonies, commentaries, and anointed poetics such as eagle and in the hope. A culmination of a lifetime of experiences compacted into a young woman's soul. Dawn invites you to take a glimpse at her journey. Perhaps, you will find pieces of yourself and your own dawning.

    I Read It All At Once...

    I normally don't buy a lot of poetry aside from the classics. However, I saw november dawn speak at a function here in Atlanta and got her book immediately. It is interesting that her style in performance art and the written word are complete anomalies. It says a lot about her range. You hear everything from her love for the classics to streewise folklore. The book is truly a breath of fresh air.
