Postcolonial Love Poem is an anthem of desire against erasure. Natalie Diaz's brilliant second collection demands that every body carried in its pages--bodies of language, land, rivers, suffering brothers, enemies, and lovers--be touched and held as beloveds. Through these poems, the wounds inflicted by America onto an indigenous people are allowed to bloom pleasure and tenderness.… (mer)

This book had been on my to-read list for so long that every time I saw it in a bookstore it was so familiar I felt uncertain as to whether I had already purchased a copy at some point. (I had not.) But then it was on the display for National Poetry Month at my local library, so I finally checked it out and read it during the Feminist Book Club Readathon.

I think all the build-up actually made it harder for me to enjoy this book. Because I felt like it was fine, I enjoyed it. There were individual poems that moved me, that inspired me, that surprised me. But somehow I stayed removed from them all. I did not love this collection quite like I wanted to. (I may also have been influenced by the fact that this library copy REEKED of cigarette smoke. I mean, it was really bad. it made being near enough this book to read it unpleasant.)

Themes of Native identity and culture, queerness, the importance of water, womanhood, myth, permeate these poems. I am glad that I finally read this, I am just a little surprised that I am unlikely to go buy a copy to keep for myself. I will still seek out her previous collection, though. ( )

I consistently enjoy Diaz's poetry. Overall I preferred When My Brother Was An Aztec, but I really treasured the river poems. First for the connection to ko au te awa, ko te awa ko au. And then for the explicit response to Urrea's the Water Museum. I did not know the connection when I chose these two books, or when I decided to read them this month, but I'm delighted to discover this conversation. ( )

I will be rereading and rereading and annotating this book - it takes turns being heartbreaking and breathtaking.

Postcolonial Love Poem won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, and wow I can see why. I had already read a couple of the poems that had been shared on tumblr, and I loved Natalie Diaz's writing. She's so so good: passionate and angry and grieving and heartfelt and poetic and in love; a master of her craft. This is a short book, but I had to put it away for a couple of days instead of reading it in one sitting because it's so intense. It will stay with me for a long time. Her poems all feel deeply personal, regardless of whether or not they actually happened in real life.
I loved this and recommend it highly, although of course the poems are often difficult to read (some topics covered include missing & murdered indigenous women, water protestors, America's anti-indigenous history and mentality, etc.). Themes I kept seeing: green, bulls/horns, the land/desert, rivers/water...

A wonderful collection of poetry deeply steeped in the author's Native American heritage. The poems here have a wide variety of subject matter. Some are environmental in nature, some involve her family with a sports bent and sensual love poems that exalt in the exploration of her lovers body. I love the variety of length, depth and structure from poem to poem. I certainly can see why this collection received all the acclaim that it did. I loved it. ( )
