In stories and poems that explore how our society shapes us b Identity Lessons b features a wide array of ethnic perspectives on growing up in America Leading the reader into the living rooms boardrooms classrooms and movie houses of America distinguished writers from all points of the American ethnic landscape shed light on the space between conformity and difference and examine the struggle between the need to belong and the pull of one s cultural roots With insight wit and poignancy the contributors to this anthology recall their attempts to reconcile family from the old country with the powerful messages about race gender and class confronting them in their new surroundings A collection of superb and moving writing b Identity Lessons b deconstructs conceptions of personal and national identity and forms an indispensable primer for understanding our cultural selves, i What I hope to accomplish in this book is to give writing prompts that will help you to get past all the outside influences that keep you from believing in yourself and in your ability to write In order to write you need to get rid of notions about language poetic form and esoteric subject matter all the things that the poetry police have told you are essential if you are to write I wanted to start from a different place a place controlled by instinct rather than by intelligence Revision the shaping and honing of the poem should come later and in revising care always needs to be taken to retain the vitality and electricity of the poem Anyone can learn to craft a capable poem but it is the poems that retain that initial vitality that we remember these are the poems that teach us how to be human i, This collection reads like a memoir detailing the life of a family across generations and giving us a moving and haunting portrait of the Italian mother who is the centre around which this family revolves The mother s stories and words shape the lives of her daughter and granddaughter but this book is about much more than ethnicity Gillan s work succeeds in transcending any single identity category and explores instead the multiple ways in which each of us learns to identify him or herself, Maria Mazziotti Gillan s Things My Mother Told Me is luminous feisty heart breaking and fiercely honest often all in the space of a single poem Her voice has the vigor and industrial strength grit of Grace Paley s and there is genuine wisdom here an intelligence born of direct experience These poems are a breath of fresh air in contrast to the fetid self obsession of so much contemporary verse a real pleasure A must read for anyone who has ever experienced the deep joys agonies and mysterious of the mother daughter bond
