Example text

Although we find a characteristic Erdrichian humor in The Beet Queen (particularly in the tales of Chez Sita, the naughty box, the Christmas pageant, and the birthday party), there is also a pervasive note of loneliness and dislocation. Its characters and families are separated and do not much love one another. Letters are written but not sent, sent but delivered to the wrong people, or delivered too late. Gifts are sent but intercepted or used for the wrong purposes. The three Adare children in particular— Karl, Mary, and Jude—are in a state of perpetual dislocation.

C. 1898 Eli Kashpaw is born to Kashpaw and Margaret. Early 1900s Fleur nearly drowns the first time. Russell Kashpaw is born to Regina Puyat and one of the Montana Kashpaws. c. 1908 Nector Kashpaw is born to Kashpaw and Margaret. c. 1910 Fleur nearly drowns the second time. Spring 1912 Pauline goes to Argus and works in Pete and Fritzie Kozka’s butcher shop. Winter 1912–1913 Consumption ravages the reservation, wiping out Nanapush’s and Fleur’s families. Nanapush rescues the nearly dead Fleur and nurses her back to life.

He kills two children and a grandmother. During the raid, a dog runs west into the open prairie with Blue Prairie Woman’s infant daughter tied to its back. Scranton follows the dog. After continuing west for several days, Scranton settles on the Great Plains. He nurses the baby, whom he names Matilda, at his own breast. Blue Prairie Woman suckles a puppy of the bitch who had carried off her baby. She is grieving, but when her Shawano husband returns to the village, they become passionate lovers.
