Marosa di Giorgio is a 'quiet, lyrical voice' --Double Room Journal

Diadem_smaller Double Room Journal is calling Marosa di Giorgio a poet with a “quiet, lyrical voice” in her new 2012 collection Diadem: Selected Poems, with English translations from the Spanish by Adam Giannelli. According to the review, the collection is full of “earthy celebrations of pastoral Uruguay and semi-surreal moments of magical realism” within a “bucolic landscape that evokes both the nostalgic innocence of childhood and the disturbing thresholds of sexual awareness.” di Giorgio's poems, compared with the works of Kafka, Pizarnik, and Cortázar, “possess the sort of allegorical dimensions one finds in myth and fable.” Purchase a copy of Diadem, today!
