Book description:
Chrystos is a part-Menominee Native lesbian. Dream On comprises her mostrecent concrete and prose poems (including the Spanish “Nadie HaAndado Antes”), and also features her drawings. Chrystos’s poems (the better ones are near the beginning of the book)touch on racism, genocide towards Indians, North American Nativeculture, homophobia, sexual abuse, poverty, animal rights, war, andlove. They are autobiographical—full of gloom, anger, passion, anderos. Reading her poetry is cathartic and therapeutic because one canfeel the emotions her poems radiate. “Winter Count,” a poem thattruly documents the plight of the North American Indian, and “Soft,”a sensuous poem about the love between two women, are the best pieces inthe book. Dream On is a powerful collection that leaves readers wanting more.
