Last West: Roadsongs for Dorothea Lange

By Tess Taylor.

Featured image, captioned "Bindles on shady side of Pastime Café. Siskiyou County, Tulelake, California" (August 1939), is reproduced from 'Last West: Roadsongs for Dorothea Lange.'

Acclaimed American poet Tess Taylor responds to Dorothea Lange’s photography with a new work

In Last West, poet Tess Taylor follows Dorothea Lange’s winding paths across California during the Great Depression and in its immediate aftermath. On these journeys, Lange photographed migrant laborers, Dust Bowl refugees, tent cities and Japanese American internment camps. Taylor’s hybrid text collages lyric and oral histories against Lange’s own journals and notebook fragments, framing the ways social and ecological injustices of the past rhyme eerily with those of the present. The result is a stunning meditation on movement, landscape and place.

“Scintillatingly rendered by Taylor as conversation, meditation, road trip, and vivid documentary account, Last West tracks the not-so-distant past into the erupting present, taking on as many poetic forms as there are California topographies.” –Forrest Gander, Chancellor of the American Academy of Poets and winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry
