A musical, magical, resilient volume from the first Native American Poet Laureate of the United States

In these poems, the joys and struggles of the everyday are played against the grinding politics of being human. Beginning in a hotel room in the dark of a distant city, we travel through history and follow the memory of the Trail of Tears from the bend in the Tallapoosa River to a place near the Arkansas River. Stomp dance songs, blues, and jazz ballads echo throughout. Lost ancestors are recalled. Resilient songs are born, even as they grieve the loss of their country. Called a “magician and a master” (San Francisco Chronicle), Joy Harjo is at the top of her form in Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings.

Joy Harjo is a writer and musician of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and was named the 23rd Poet Laureate of the United States Poet Laureate in 2019. The author of nine books of poetry and a memoir, Crazy Brave, her many honors include the Jackson Poetry Prize, the Ruth Lilly Prize, the Wallace Stevens Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Josephine Miles Poetry Award, the William Carlos Williams Award, and the American Indian Distinguished Achievement in the Arts Award. Harjo is a chancellor of the Academy of American Poets and a founding member of the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation. She lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Reviews

“When Harjo confronts tragedy, she becomes our conscience.”

“This is not merely a book of poetry. These are instructions for the soul, a song to lead the reader home…[Harjo is] the first lady of American Indian poetry.”

“[Harjo’s] poetry is light and elixir, the very best prescription for us in wounded times.”

“Harjo masterfully helps us travel through landscape and it’s hard not to feel such loss but also a glimmer of hope as these poems brace against what it means to listen to the land and to each other.”

“Joy Harjo…brings to life many of the stories, songs, and traditions of her Muscogee and Cherokee ancestors…Her reading is clear and clearly impassioned, expressing the considerable emotional depth of the poetry and commentary…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings is a marvelous instrument that veins through a dark lode of American history…And at the end of this epic voyage, the reader surfaces at sunrise.”
