Gathering Words


Resumen del Libro

Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Maria Luisa Arroyos GATHERING WORDS/RECOGIENDO PALABRAS gives a voice to the oppressed, the abused, and the forgotten. It speaks from battered womens shelters and from inside homes that hide domestic violence and child abuse. Laying bare the stark realities of life with phrases that are alternately elegant, blunt, and rich with vivid imagery, Arroyo writes with spine-tingling candor that does not allow us to deny the truth. Shaped by her familys background in Puerto Rican music, her poems, written mostly in English, are reminiscent of folksongs with their narrative storytelling and activist representation of the disenfranchised, disillusioned, and neglected. This is Arroyos first full-length collection of poems.
