South Native Guard is haunted by Native Guard Summary | SuperSummary Native Guard is a book of poetry by American author and former United States Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey It is deeply focused on the racial legacy of America’s Deep South particularly on the unreliability and mutability of memory The book’s title refers to the Louisiana Native Guards one of the first black regiments of the American military which was brought into battle during the Civil War Native Guard by Natasha Trethewey Goodreads Native Guard is by Pulitzer Prize winner and US Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey Her father named her after Tolstoy's character Natasha in War and Peace she says in the poem Miscegenation which is included in the collection Born in Trethewey's parents were a black woman and a white man and their marriage was illegal in her native state of Mississippi They had to flee to Native Guard Poems Trethewey Natasha Natasha Trethewey's Native Guard had me hooked from the first poem Not only is her writing chock full of imagery and beautiful diction but the subject matter is haunting and compelling She gives wi Natasha Trethewey is the southern born daughter of an African American mother and white father at a time when such relations were illegal Her parents were married in Canada and lived for a time in California but the pull of the south brought them home Yet racism reared its ugly head and the couple divorced but not before molding a daughter who would later go on to be named Poet Laureate of the United States Today Trethewey is a professor of creative writing at Emory University Her poetry collection Native Guard which speaks of the history of life in the south won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 2007 and is indeed a powerful collection Trethewey divides her slim yet poignant volume of poetry into three sections The first and third sections speak of the modern state of affairs in Mississippi focusing on her parents' marriage and divorce and also the relationships that Trethewey had with various neighbors in her community which were undoubtedly effected by the fact that Trethewey was mixed race She begins the collection with a poem titled The Southern Cresecent which describes her mother's journey to California by train At age sixteen she was escaping a south where she had no future and practiced meeting her future husband by staring at his photograph Later a young Natasha travels by train with her mother to meet her father She writes I don't recall how she must have held me how her face sank as she realized again the uncertainty of it all that trip too gone wrong Trethewey speaks of the courage it took for her mother to live as an African American woman in the south and these reflections are evident in much of her writing In addition to paying homage to her courageous mother the second section honors the Native Guard of Louisiana and Mississippi freed slaves who fought for the union army during the civil war In Pilgrimage she speaks of the ghosts of history in Vicksburg and how they rear their head even today Her powerful title poem Native Guard begins with a uote from Frederick Douglass Trethewey then details the war from the perspective of freed slaves from late 1862 through 1865 By February of 1863 they knew it was their duty now to keep white men as prisoners rebel soldiers would be mastersstill they are wary of a negro writing taking down letters The Native Guard served in the army at a danger to themselves and Trethewey captures their feeling with poignant words She ends the section by returning to cotton where another veteran toils his hands the color of dark soil showing that unfortunately slavery still exists in all but name despite the courage of those like the native guard Trethewey finishes her volume with odes to her mother like Miscegenation which speaks of the danger a mixed race couple faced in the south Subseuent poems as My Mother Dreams Another Country Blond and Southern Gothic talk of the danger a mixed race couple dealt with on a daily basis especially when raising children Trethewey's own parents eventually divorced and after reading her words I am left wondering if hearing their daughter called names like mongrel half breed and zebra had anything to do with their decision Each poem is powerful than the next and contain the common theme of racism in the south long after the passage of the Civil Rights Act Prior to this year I was not a big reader of poetry Yet poems open the window to the writer's soul and speak much of human emotions When I took on a personal challenge of reading a minimum of twenty Pulitzer winners a year I decided to include poetry Natasha Trethewey's poetry tells much of life in the south and is worthy of both the Pulitzer and position as Poet Laureate Her poems are a powerful five star read and I look forward to reading her other volumes of work
