Tracy K. Smith's bold second poetry collection explores the history and intersections of folk traditions and political resistance. One poem tells of a Ho-Chuk Indian boy, separated from his tribe by the government, another gives voice to Ugandan women kidnapped by rebel commanders. Duende gives passionate testament to the history of these cultures and others, allowing them to sing.
