As I Am / Soy Como Soy
2023 | Spanish Edition
This is Cristina Cortez's second poetry collection and her most personal. Introspective and, at times, tender, the verses flow in unexpected ways, waving and ebbing, up and down, separating one from the next, or using the Cento technic to turn classical pieces into intimate ones. A sense of beautiful uncertainty derives from these poems; and also, a reassurance-that the poet knows what she's doing, and she's guiding the readers through the exact paths she wants them to see.
Yo Soy, Yo Vivo
2022 | Spanish Edition
The poet invites us to her reflections on the poetic word and its resources in this book. These poems allow us to be and live, perhaps just a little, his experience of his body as a territory, his daily challenges as a person with disabilities, and the unlimited strength and horizon of his intellect, which from the metaphor of the dream, transforms daily and deeply their territory and ours.
