Killing Marias: A Poem For Multiple Voices

Claudia Castro Luna · Two Sylvias Press · 2017 · 72 pp

Desde Estados Unidos · Poesía

In this epic poetry collection Killing Marías, Claudia Castro Luna, both poetically and physically, settles spaces that were unclaimed by Latinas. Her inscription of the disappeared women of Juárez is a live cartographic image of struggle and spiritual survival. Castro Luna does not allow for these dead women to lack agency; they nourish us and the earth, and they speak with their bodies, literally, positioning themselves as recovered entities with agency, in the poet's skilled narrativizing hands.
