And Then We Became by Devorah Major
88 pages | paperback | 5 x 0.2 x 7 inches | published by City Lights Publishers
Who are we humans, with our differences and our personal histories, mythologies and urgencies, as well as our collective struggles and dreams? Why are we here?
Questions of culture, ethnicity and gender—and the denial of those borders—infuse these poems, rich with social and political commentary, and filled with compassion, love, anger and hope. Even while writing of one child, one homeless person, one soldier, one war survivor, Devorah Major connects these individual stories to a contemplation of humanity's place in the cosmos.
