    Winner of the Carl Sandburg Award for Poetry

    Angela Jackson brings her remarkable linguistic and poetic gifts to the articulation of African-American experience. The recurrent motif of the spider, which she presents as both creator and predator, demonstrates her deliberate reshaping of myth in the context of contemporary human experience. Informed by African-American speech and poetic traditions, yet uniquely her own, these poems display Jackson’s stylistic grace, her exuberance and vitality of spirit, and her emotional sensitivity and psychological insight.
