This is a handbook of courage. In crisp and lucid language, Marguerite Guzmán Bouvard recreates for us these brave women "who have shown / again and again ... that nothing can make them invisible."
What poetry can do at best is to keep us in touch with the cruel realities we too often choose to forget. The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo are now to live forever and remind us that there is still work to do to uncover torture, to let the dead live again in memory and in celebration. Marguerite Guzmán Bouvard has accomplished this in a series of remarkable poems.
