Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This large, bilingual collection contains work from more than 20 years of writing, including a small -selection of new work, arranged by themes fundamental to Agosín’s artistic and critical oeuvre. Her rich Eastern European and Latin American heritage, her experience in exile and her profound humanistic vision accompany the poet as she writes about ancestors, women, children, the poor and the disinherited. Despite the difficult material she examines, Agosín expresses a need to -rejoice in life and to believe in the possibility of change. Always searching for life’s bare essentials, -often in a spare language that reveals the common threads that unite us all, Agosín explores such diverse landscapes "to make beauty and order out of pain and chaos.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive selection of work from this renowned writer and human rights activist.

Synopsis:

Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. "Agosin's poetic language engages the reader in a mesmerizing journey of inward reflection and exile...With her poems as our guide, we traverse history's darkest corridors, yet are reminded of the endurance of the human spirit. This is poetry that is both memorable and haunting"--Isabel Allende. "Marjorie Agosin's muses have first names and last names and they inhabit with their brilliance the poetry of this Chilean-American writer"--Elena Poniatowska.
