Textualizing the Rural South Elon University: Learning on Demand

Galatea Resurrects #23 (A Poetry Engagement) Review by: Grace Ocasio

Excerpt: Smith often surprises, fascinating the reader with her breadth of knowledge of the rural South.  Smith writes of the southern black experience without making race her central theme.  Poems dealing with religion are handled tastefully, emphasizing the communal nature of church gatherings.  Smith’s volume is a must read for those concerned that the sights and sounds of the rural South are no longer being documented in written form.
