No Shelter

A Lannan Translation Selection
Beautifully translated by the award-winning American poet Forrest Gander, the work of highly esteemed Mexican poet Pura Ló pez-Colomé is, with this important volume, available in the US for the first time. Selected by Gander from throughout Ló pez-Colomé 's five books in Spanish, these exceptional poems confront the confinements of fate, history, and misbegotten beliefs.
In forms that blur back and forth between poetry and prose, Ló pez-Colomé uses spare and honest language to describe the music of dreams, faith, and faithlessness; hers are poems of the soul resuscitated from the shackles of the body. As Gander notes in his Introduction: "[This] poetry is philosophical and exacting, pared into short, sharp lines, obsidian flakes." Indeed, the fierce intelligence and insistent moral and spiritual engagement of Ló pez-Colomé 's poetry situate her among the most significant contemporary Mexican poets. "No Shelter" is a bilingual edition, with English translations appearing in the first half of the text and the Spanish originals in the second.
