Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Latino/ Latina Studies. It's hard between two people./ Some days we walk the clouds of these mountains./ Others I hear only complaints, the straight/ lines of will (God Went Away for the Winter, She Said). A tapestry of cultivated passions — loves, lovers, barrios, landscapes — embraced with soul and heart. Her voice is soft and trusting, mature with deep and meaningful experiences. She seems to say, 'Dig softly in this garden because the ground is soft and freshly turned.' The garden being memories, dreams, sorrows, doubts, wonders, which she opens to the reader, enchanting us with her clean, spare, sensual language, its erotic edge, and her revelatory celebrations of loneliness and love — Jimmy Santiago Baca. Fearless, makes me feel ready for a new skin to emerge — Frank Morgan.

Synopsis:

The rich, lyrical poetry of Rene Gregorios second collection echoes the impassioned tradition of Mirabai, Yosano Akiko, and Anne Sexton. Gregorio is comfortable with a wide range of poetic possibility, working with traditional forms such as haiku, tanka, ghazal, and villanelle as well as with the prose poem and experimentations with lyric poetry. Her subject matter is equally diverse, encompassing the actual and philosophical other, social doubt, love, the natural world, death, the Japanese martial art Aikido, and a sense of the deep significance of place, whether that place is the Southwest, London, a barrio, a mountain village, or simply the sense that one can achieve ones own center, no matter where.
