Summary
"In Voices, Clifton continues her celebrated aesthetic of writing poems for the disempowered and the underprivileged while finding humor and redemption among life's many hardships. This book also highlights Clifton's ability to write inventive dramatic monologues. Voices includes monologues spoken by animals, as well as by the food product spokespeople Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and the apparently nameless guy on the Cream of Wheat box. Spare muscular language combines with copious silences to create the trademark Clifton poem - one in which the speaker always understands that the joy, grief and loss others have experience stands in direct relationship with her own."--Jacket
