Full description for Migrations
Gloria Gervitz's epic poem Migraciones (Migrations) was in the process of composition for nearly thirty years, and was finally completed with the publication of a limited edition version of Septiembre (September), the seventh book, in 2003. This life's work revolves around themes of memory and history, family and displacement, the diaspora and integration, language and discovery, and is a dramatic affirmation that wonderful poetry continues to come out of Mexico. Gloria Gervitz lives in her native Mexico City. This book presents the entire text of "Migraciones" in its original Spanish, together with Mark Schafer's English translation. Gloria Gervitz is a Mexican poet (born 1942, Mexico City) whose work is rooted in memory, the Jewish diaspora, and the crossing of cultures.
