About this product
- DescriptionTraces the evolution of a gifted lyrical poet's encounter with the political. When the poet's on in law and daughter 'disappear', kidnapped by the Argentinian government, the poet must write from both a lyrical and physical exile. In this posthumously published labor of love by translator Hardie St Nartin, Gelman's staggering biography and the poetics he developed to articulate and survive it are unforgettably translated into beautiful and accessible poems that when taken together weave a fragile but healing transformation.
