Series: Carnegie Mellon Poetry Series. I recently re-read the book (more than a decade after having first read it!) and I continue to be impressed by its artistry and quiet compassion. In a series of poems, this book tells the story of an African-American family in the 20th century. The book ends with a chronology that serves as a sort of "skeleton" for the story told in Dove's gentle free verse. Thomas and Beulah are an African-American couple who live in Akron, Ohio.

“Photographers once risked their hands and eyes igniting vials of magnesium powder, so powerful is the love of the image,” says the title poem of this collection, whose images range from the northern lights to St. Bridget turning bathwater into beer. “Did you know some people claim to have heard the aurora?” one poem asks. The muses of music and image wrestle in these poems, but from the songs of Elvis Costello to the operas of Leoš Janácek, music seems to prevail, even against “the glorious, trillion-spined black lava slicing through your flip-flops” and "night jasmine kicking the door ajar.”
