Description:

A Lannan Translation Selection Beautifully translated by the award-winning American poet Forrest Gander, the work of highly esteemed Mexican poet Pura Loacute;pez-Colomeacute; is, with this important volume, available in the US for the first time. Selected by Gander from throughout Loacute;pez-Colomeacute;'s five books in Spanish, these exceptional poems confront the confinements of fate, history, and misbegotten beliefs. In forms that blur back and forth between poetry and prose, Loacute;pez-Colomeacute; uses spare and honest language to describe the music of dreams, faith, and faithlessness; hers are poems of the soul resuscitated from the shackles of the body. As Gander notes in his Introduction: "[This] poetry is philosophical and exacting, pared into short, sharp lines, obsidian flakes." Indeed, the fierce intelligence and insistent moral and spiritual engagement of Loacute;pez-Colomeacute;'s poetry situate her among the most significant contemporary Mexican poets. No Shelter is a bilingual edition, with English translations appearing in the first half of the text and the Spanish originals in the second.
