    One thought on “Questions I Asked My Mother”

    1. If I have been untrueI hope you know it was never to you Leonard Cohenlearning to speak in public to write love poemsfor all the world to read meant betraying once for all the good Mennonite daughter I tried sounsuccessfully to become acknowledging in myselfthe rebel traitor thief the one who asked toomany questions who argued with the father withGod who always took thing always went too farwho questioned every thing the one who talked toooften too loud the questionable one shoutingfrom rooftops [...]

    2. This book remains for me a remarkable act of courage For a Mennonite woman to write it, to speak outside of church as she did in these poems makes the Miriam Toews and the Nikki Reimer and the other women who ve lived with this brand of patriarchal, imposed silence possible In a culture where, in our own post modern lifetimes, women were savagely silenced and punished for any effort to be SEEN, to be HEARD, this book resists and, I hope, remains read as a crucial member in the CanPo canon.

    3. This is one of Di Brandt s early books and I did read it before, but now re read it again I like her insights into the Mennonite community she came from Her work is insightful, honest, and compact.

    4. This is amazing book definitely my favorite di brandt that i ever read very intense, amazing poetry, really gripping content lots of reflections on menno childhood, etc maybe the only di brandt book that i would recommend to everybody
