All Saints: New and Selected Poems

Write The First Customer Review

Like the feast day recalled in its title, this collection of 20 narrative poems venerates the dead. Brenda Marie Osbey invokes, impersonates, and converses with her Afro-New Orleans forebears. Assisted by a glossary of New Orleans ethnic expressions, place names, and characters, we discern in these poems a multitude of voices that speak to us from colonial times forward.
