From Eves Rib

Gioconda Belli's poetry, widely published and revered in Latin America and Europe, celebrates the longing for a society in which humanity constructs its future, animated by an inextinguishable erotic, maternal, and transcentendly loving desire. As Salman Rushdie wrote in his book, The Jaguar Smile: A Nicaraguan Journey, her poetry is a "kind of public love poetry that comes clower, to expressing the passion of Nicaragua than anything I [have] yet heard."
About the Author

Gioconda Belli (born December 9, 1948 in Managua, Nicaragua) is an author, novelist and renowned Nicaraguan poet.


" Her poems link feminist eroticism with social convictions..." -- American Poetry Review

"Gioconda Belli is one of the most gifted writers to have come out of Central America in the last ten years. She possesses a wonderfully free and original talent." --Harold Pinter

" . . . [this] bilingual collection of Gioconda Belli's poetry offers a woman's perspective of Nicaraguan life before, during, and after the Sandinista triumph."
