Intimate, intense poems forge a language for life when life is at stake

In her most recent book, Watchword--the winner of the Villaurrutia, Mexico's most esteemed literary prize--acclaimed poet Pura L pez Colom writes of life at its brink with fierce honesty and an unblinking eye. This work shares the darkness, intensity, and skeptical hope of Thomas Hardy's great poems. Like them, L pez Colom 's poems have flashes of secular mysticism, sparked from language itself, which generate unforgettable passages and give voice to a world familiar and odd, wounded and buoyant. In the energy and intensity of her work and in her exhilarating words, we discover both a line of conduct and the source for a richer life. This bilingual edition features the poems en face in Spanish and English.
