By unflinchingly charting the intersections of public and personal history, Thrall explores the historical, cultural, and social forces-across time and space-that determine the roles consigned to a mixed-race daughter and her white father. In a vivid series of poems about interracial marriage depicted in the Casta Paintings of Colonial Mexico, Trethewey investigates the philosophical assumptions that underpin Enlightenment notions of taxonomy and classification, exposing the way they encode ideas of race within our collective imagination. While tropes about captivity, bondage, inheritance, and enthrallment permeate the collection, Trethewey, by reflecting on a series of small estrangements from her poet father, comes to an understanding of how, as father and daughter, they are part of the ongoing history of race in America.… (mehr)

I am again in jaw-dropping awe at how Trethewey weaves themes/motifs throughout her collections, to the point that just when you start to forget about them she winds her way back to them in the most impactful way possible. I found especially brilliant the theme and imagery of looking back while trying to move forward, of the intricate relationship between nostalgia, knowledge, and progress. Cannot recommend enough. ( )

Unique angle on the experiences of being biracial, many of Trethewey's poems regard classic paintings that illustrate the relationships between white people and people of color. Her words evoke emotions on a visceral level. Moving. ( )

The only other book of poetry I've read by Natasha Trethewey was Native Guard, which I loved. Thrall was good but didn't hold up to that same standard for me. These poems all address the complicatedness of mixed race, whether by exploring classic paintings and art or Trethewey's own (or perhaps her narrator's, I know that's often different in poetry though these felt very personal) relationship with her white father. The ones on art were particularly challenging because the artwork was not included. The final poem, "The Illumination," was my favorite. ( )

Interesting, sometimes moving sequence of ekphrastic poems centering on paintings from the Renaissance through the 19th century depicting people of color. The poems are sometimes slightly precious, but the final part of the book, which includes poems about Juan de Pareja and the poet's father, is beautiful and challenging. Won me over. ( )

This is a fantastic book (as is her earlier book, Native Guard, which I read about six years ago). Natasha Trethewey's writing is superb. I am inspired by her use of ekphrasis to explore the lives of multiracial people, and moved by her poems about her relationship with her father. I think my favorite poem is the one about marginalia--"Illumination."
