    I "finished" reading this book of poetry while up at Tule Lake Segregation Center, and it made the bleak landscape come alive with the the memories of those who endured World War II there behind barbed wire, including the young Lawson Inada. I especially like " The Legend of Other Camps" and "The Legend of Targets" -- which recounts the improbable game the incarcerated children played with spent bullet casings from the soldiers on target practice, shouting "Pow" and "You missed!" Later poems, fr [...]

    I'm not big on poetry -- I'm the first to admit that; however, I truly enjoyed reading 'Legends'. Some poems you'll read quickly and shallowly, just picking up the tones and patterns before moving on.

    John got me this for the holidays. I'm in love already. Part prose, part poetry, part history. Reminds me structurally of Pale Fire by Nabokov. Inada's intro. talks about the fact that the poems are arranged like movements. There are whole sections in response to jazz. Inspiring for musical/poetic collaboration. I love poets who aren't afraid to mix poetry and prose structures. Some poems are as tiny as a breath. Wonderful.

    I give up. I just didn't get this. I couldn't finish it. Rarely, rarely, do I not finish a book, but this one has been languishing in my car under a mound of ski gear for several months. Time to take it back to the library for someone who will hopefully both understand and "get" it.

    sections with context prefaces. personal. jazz. camp. oregonesno. performance.
