Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Ishmael Reed Publishing Company is proud to introduce UNDER BURNING

WHITE SKY, the first poetry collection to be published by Boadiba, a

Haitian-born poet and translator who currently lives in the San

Francisco Bay Area.

Boadiba’s poetry, well-known to American poets and poetry lovers

since her arrival in the United States in the 1980s, can now be easily

shared through this ninety page collection of twenty-five years of work.

Acclaimed for her distinctive poetry readings based in Haitian cultural

and musical traditions, her searingly honest poems reflect her deep

knowledge of her Haitian heritage, cutting edge contemporary art, and

experiences gained through many travels.

In her "Introduction" Boadiba writes, "I sing those who make gardens of

their mountain towns, who make theater among the trees, those who

send fire words flying in the face of censorship, those who are always

willing to offer knowledge and competency for the good of Haiti,

without giving in to the waste and corruption that so far has

accompanied the office of power."
