From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter Wisconsin Bookwatch
The deaf, lacking the ability to hear the spoken word, put a special emphasis on the written. “Moon on the Meadow” is a collection from Pia Taavila, a professor of English at Gallaudet University, one of the foremost universities for the deaf in America. The poetry speaks on visual description, evoking emotion from a world without sound showing that it isn’t required to enjoy the beauty of the world. “Moon on the Meadow” is a unique offering, a top pick for poetry lovers everywhere. “Slant Cinquain“: Slim, bare/treetops laced the/hidden moon, our sky a/fog no sun could break/we talked till birds called.
Pia Taavila is Professor, Department of English at Gallaudet University, Washington, DC.
