A daughter of the American South and a child of an interracial marriage that defied a law still on the books in 1966 Mississippi, Natasha Trethewey does not shy away from the difficult themes that plague the regions past. At the spine of this collection is the forgotten story of the Louisiana NativeGuards, one of the first black regiments called into service during the Civil War. The racial legacy of this war echoes through elegiac poems that honor Tretheweys mother and tell of her own fraught childhood. A haunted and beguiling narrative, Native Guard is caught in the intersection of nationaland personal experience.
