The Angel of Memory

Marjorie Agosin. Wings Press (TX), $17.95 (188pp) ISBN 978-0-930324-75-9

A Jew in a world of Gentiles and a Chilean transported to America, Agosin has always lived between worlds which is amply reflected in the two dozen books of poetry and memoir that she has crafted. Meditative yet penetrating, the new poems in this collection survey the terrain of human suffering (Agosin is also a human rights activist) without ever turning strident.
