Poems by Olga Orozco translated with an introduction by Mary Crow.
Latin American Literature.
Olga Orozco's poetic voice is as recognizable and unique as a fingerprint. No other poet anywhere in the world has a voice which sounds like hers. In a language that is a torrent of words, passionate and yearning, stumbling and pleading, Orozco's poems pour out an image-laden vision. Her poems seem to be called forth by Shaman powers, out of a magical realm where primitive ritual, fairy tale, chaos, and nightmare mingle. Elements of the modern world flat with fragments of dreams and tags of childhood recollections, making readers feel both dizzy and at home.
