Louise Erdrich's Justice Trilogy

Connie A. Jacobs

Louise Erdrich is one of the most important, prolific, and widely read contemporary Indigenous writers. Here leading scholars analyze three critically acclaimed recent novels—The Plague of Doves (2008), The Round House (2012), and LaRose (2016)—that make up what has become known as Erdrich’s “justice trilogy.” Set in small towns and reservations of northern North Dakota, these three interwoven works bring together a vibrant cast of characters whose lives are shaped by history, identity, and community. In addition to essays that individually and collectively explore these works, the volume includes a reader’s guide to each novel, a glossary, and an interview with Erdrich. These timely, original, and compelling readings make a valuable contribution to Erdrich scholarship and, subsequently, to Native literary scholarship and women’s authorship as a whole.
