"Volando bajito is a strong, raw, transparent book that makes us tremble. Readers can feel every poem with their entire body, their entire soul. Alicia Partnoy had to fly low, otherwise she couldn't have tracked down all that blood, all those scattered bones, all those spirits left hanging from the windmills' sails. It is a book of testimonial poems that forces us to remember that tender girl who always waits for us, a girl called Solidarity."
— Claribel Alegría
"The terse sensuality of these poems – their gentleness and unflinching courage in the face of devestation, of genocide – is so much more than instructive. It is poetry with the subtlety and insight of our greatest resources, intelligence and compassion."
Reading poet Elizabeth Bradfield’s latest collection, Toward Antarctica: An Exploration, may not be as dramatic as actually visiting the continent, but it will likely be as close as many of us will get. Thanks […]
