LOUISE MCNEILL:
Hill Daughter: New and Selected Poems - used book

ISBN: 0822954567

ID: 4870568

Introduction by Maggie Anderson Musically complex and intellectually sophisticated, Louise McNeill's imagery and rhythms have their deepest sources in the West Virginia mountains where she was born in 1911 on a farm that has been in her family for nine generations.? These are rooted poems, passionately concerned with stewardship of the land and with the various destructions of land and people that often come masked as ?progress." In colloquial, rural, and sometimes macabre imagery, Louise McNeill documents the effects of the change from a farm to an industrial economy on the West Virginia mountain people.? She writes of the earliest white settlements on the western side of the Alleghenies and of the people who remained there through the coming of the roads, the timber and coal industries, and the several wars of this century. The reappearance of Louise McNeill's long out-of-print poems will be cause for celebration for readers familiar with her work.? Those reading it for the first time will discover musical, serious, idiosyncratic, and startling poems that define the Appalachian experience. literature and fiction,poetry,regional and cultural Poetry, University of Pittsburgh Press
