Heid E. Erdrich is of German and Ojibwe heritage. Both parts of her background get voices--along with the connections and conflicts between them--in this audio collection of her poetry. She also writes about being a woman, about being in love, and about a range of other issues, delivering her own work in a calm tone, even when some rage might be justified. She varies her volume--so much so that it might be a problem if one is listening with any background noise--but the emotional range is otherwise limited. The poetry could support a more passionate performance, but the author's idea of how her work should sound is revealing. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2021]
