Maroon is the debut collection of Haitian-American poet Danielle Legros Georges, who writes of the pain of exile, the beauty of nature, and the delights of love in highly rhythmic, highly original language. The range of her voice is remarkable— from the comic to the tragic to the lyric. Her poetry is electric with an overpowering zest for life and vitality of language, as she examines the traumatic experiences that brought her parents to America and searches for a more complete understanding of self.
"...a work of art that resembles a three dimensional sculpture readers can feel, see, taste, and touch."
