New and Selected Poems of Cecilia Vicuña (Paperback)
Poetry. Latinx Studies. Art. Edited by Rosa Alcal . NEW AND SELECTED POEMS OF CECILIA VICU A is a telling of old cultures, modern nation states and lives in exile. Rodrigo Toscano calls Vicu a's poetry the outer out, beyond nation states, passed 'inter state' affairs, in other words, close in, as close as we get to our fair planet's sources, and to each other. In this bilingual collection, Vicu a and her translator, Rosa Alcal , are artist witnesses to a natural world that is a storehouse of sacred words, seeds, threads and songs. Present everywhere, they are sources for a rebalancing in human relationships and for new forms of grace and healing. In Vicu a's vision, art is life and intimacy with it is transformative.
