EMPATHY IS SOMETIMES DIFFICULT to evoke in people unless you have a very keen sense of painting the imagery and emotion with words. Camille Dungy does this well in her collection Suck on the Marrow, and the images all refer to fighting and strength, especially in adversity and in the face of slavery. The human need for knowledge, love, understanding everything is there; even though there was such separation and exclusion during this time in history, Dungy captures the human heart and soul in her characters while illustrating the rawness of their suffering with gracefully blatant and rebellious passion.
