Keywords:Native American, Native American Memoir, Native American Poetry, Lenape, Poetry, Literature
AbstractThis is a review of Denise Low's memoir The Turtle's Beating Heart: One Family's Story of Lenape Survival and book of poetry Shadow Light. These two works differ stylistically and engage with similar themes about human mortality, the beauty of nature, loss, and intergenerational trauma. Combined, the two books inform each other and let readers into Low's personal reflections and unerstandings as she explores her family's past and learns more about her Lenape grandfather, Frank Bruner.
