Since winning the 1976 Yale Younger Poets Award for her powerful debut, Gathering the Tribes, Forché has stood out among American poets for both her remarkable technical skills and lyricism and her heartfelt engagement with political issues. A leading human rights activist, educator—now University Professor at Georgetown University—and translator, she follows her acclaimed memoir, What You Have Heard Is True, with her first new collection of poems in seventeen years. A literary event, this beautiful book of elegies and memories wanders the world, commemorating unsung private moments as well as resounding historical events. Yet even as she charts an unsettling series of migrations, displacements, and ecological destruction, Forché remains "open then to the coming of what comes"
