Product Overview

"The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder" is an unusual collection of poems that combines craft, innovation, humour and down-to-earth insight in a focused and riveting read that will charm poetry buffs of every stripe.
The poems in "The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder" subversively and imaginatively inhabit the voices of characters from Wilder's famous "Little House" books--human and non-human, animate and inanimate--but launch them in new directions. Rather than acting as extensions of Wilder's stories, the voices, characters and details in the poems become vehicles for modernday questions and observations.
With titles like "Ma's Green Delaine Dress," "Mary's Fingers," "Pa"s Rifle," and "Pa"s Penis," the poems in "The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder" are anything but conventional. Peculiar, gripping and exquisitely crafted, "The Love Song of Laura Ingalls Wilder" is an unforgettable new collection.
