Description - Sargasso by Isabel Allende
The poems in this collection by critically-acclaimed Chilean poet, editor and human rights activist Marjorie Agosin reflect her deep-rooted passion for nature, for life, and for being. Agosin creates a world where everything touches the sea and is, in turn, touched by it - a simple world where when her son is born she asks for 'a flower, a light, a glass of water'. From the child who 'discovers the sky' in water to the young couple who promised to be 'a single branch of water, one single stream', to the old women 'making their way toward the sea...to dissolve in the beat of the waves', Agosin fills her world with people who can 'carry the scents of the river and the sign of the water'. Bilingual edition - text in both English and Spanish.
