Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Latino/ Latina Studies. Born in Cuba in 1902, Dulce Maria Loynaz established herreputation as a poet in the first half of the 20th century but vowed to never write poetry again after the Cuban Revolution in 1959. Fiercely loyal to her homeland, Loynaz always resided in Cuba and came to be regarded as a national jewel after receiving the prestigious Miguel de Cervantes prize in 1992. Included here are many of Loynaz's most important poems in gentle, unassuming translations that accurately capture the quiet desperation and passionate, often unfulfilled longing they convey. "Below the still surface,/ erasing itself as it is written,/ my secret will slip by/ like a reflection in the water" - from "When we go to the sea." Translated from the Spanish by Judith Kerman.

Synopsis:

A selection of work from all phases of this important Cuban poet's career.
