Azure, A. (2011). Games of transformation. Ed. T. Strauss. Chicago: Albatross Press.
From her first poem in Games of Transformation, Alice M. Azure draws the reader into another world, one steeped in history and immersed in shadows of an ancient culture that can only be intuited. She pulls us deep into this lost world and sets us down in the midst of “eight-rowed corn, mica, Ramey pots, river trade routes,” and stains buried deep in the soil of Cahokia Mounds. This is poetry in its truest form.
