Savage Conversations by LeAnne Howe

Eidson Distinguished Professor LeAnne Howe's latest work, SAVAGE CONVERSATIONS, is a Paris Review staff pick.

From the article: "In Savage Conversations, LeAnne Howe takes this historical fact and spins a drama in verse with a cast of three characters: Mary Todd Lincoln, Savage Indian, and The Rope. In Howe’s telling, Savage Indian is one of the thirty-eight Dakota people executed on the orders of President Abraham Lincoln in 1862—the largest mass execution in U.S. history."
