The place that Maria Mazziotti Gillan calls home is a universal haven built of enduring memories and peopled by loving family In Gillan s newest book of poetry THE PLACE I CALL HOME we share her complex emotions of an immigrant childhood in Paterson New Jersey in the s her long marriage her husband s devastating illness and her subsequent widowhood Yet we also share the sheltering family in which she grew up the deep love binding her and her husband the unfolding of her life as a mother and grandmother and most of all her resilient spirit She reminds us that even when the bud of youthful naivete flowers into the reality of an uncaring universe we are home again when we recall the protection we felt within the warm sanctuary of family These poems are beautiful crystalline narratives sometimes exuberant and sometimes poignant but always unflinchingly true, This is an intensely compelling poetry of all the human places we are given to live in Her fellow poets have long known the remarkable heart Maria Mazziotti Gillan brings to all the commitments of her life Robert Creeley poetry women, 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, Poetry Italian American Studies Maria Mazziotti Gillan s Ancestors Song takes the reader on a journey one in which she recognizes deep within herself the voices of the women who came before their words blending together forming as she tells the reader the beat I move to This beat is very much a part of the narrative she weaves in her characteristically honest intimate and humorous voice This beat is true hard working strong a beat that began in the villages on the mountaintops in San Mauro Italy and continues to the present day illuminating the path for those that will follow These poems will move you to laughter to tears and a mixture of both and are proof that Gillan is at the peak of her career She is truly one of America s most beloved poets
