A multicultural array of poets explore what it is means to be American
This powerful and moving collection of poems stretches across the boundaries of skin color, language, ethnicity, and religion to give voice to the lives and experiences of ethnic Americans. With extraordinary honesty, dignity, and insight, these poems address common themes of assimilation, communication, and self-perception. In recording everyday life in our many American cultures, they displace the myths and stereotypes that pervade our culture.
Unsettling America includes work by:
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Naomi Shihab Nye
...and many more.
