Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Poetry. African & African American Studies. Latino/Latina Studies. Women's Studies. Translated from the Spanish by Pamela Carmell. Bilingual Edition. Honorable Mention, 2016 International Latino Book Award for Best Bilingual Poetry Book. A collection of poetry by the world famous Afro-Cuban belle des letres Nancy Morejón. According to Alice Walker, "Morejón's poems remind us that all worlds are complex, complicated, dense. Sometimes it is only the poet's breath that holds together the disparities, some of them achingly diverse." The power of her lyrical voice mesmerizes. Most of these poems have never before appeared in English, and Pamela Carmell's delicate touch does tribute to their depth and intricacy. The theme of the collection is love, in all its forms—from romantic love, to familial affection, to patriotic fervor. Known as a feminist and a powerfully political player of the Cuban Revolution, Morejón reveals a different side of herself in this bilingual volume. Experience depths of passion and pride as experienced and represented by one of the most uniquely talented poets of our time.
