Night Is a Sharkskin Drum

PDF EBook by Haunani-Kay Trask

EBook Description

I want to give this book a higher score. Night Is a Sharkskin Drum PDF EBook I want to love this book. But I can't. A lot of the pain that pours from the ink in each word is directly caused by my racial background. I am Hawaiian at Heart, which means that while I love the culture and live it (it's kind of required when you're married to a Native Hawaiian), I am neither Hawaiian nor was I born in Hawaii, so I am always an outsider, a tourist. My presence, in a lot of ways, is exactly what Trask responds to in many of these poems. They are filled with anger and sorrow and beauty. The tendency here is to make some simile about nature, but that would make the sentiment in the book sound primitive when it's a very, very modern one. Like this book?
