It is this other landscape, the history and collective memory of a people, that speaks through Seven Trees Against the Dying Light." "The trees these poems honor conserve the local soil and the memories of the place they inhabit. They are figures of life, stained by seawater and gunpowder, by the bright red, bittersweet juice of the many life-giving plums that flourish in Nicaragua, and by the blood spilled there. The poems offer a way to remember who we are, where we come from, and, above all, where we are bound if we cannot learn to root language in the earth that sustains us." "Printed in Spanish with facing English translations, the poems are supplemented by an introduction with an ecocritical focus and by complete notes on botanical, historical, mythological, and sociopolitical references."--BOOK JACKET." ;
