Loose woman : poems by Sandra Cisneros( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A candid, sexy and wonderfully mood-strewn collection of poetry that celebrates the female aspects of love, from the reflective to the overtly erotic. Seductive, earthy, at times confessional, Sandra Cisneros's vibrant new collection of poetry celebrates the female aspects of love - from the reflective to the overtly erotic - in a voice recognizable from her powerful works of fiction. These poems offer narratives as formally elegant as they are emotional and accessible. They are bound together by the voice of one woman, whose language spans cultures and continents. She is a woman who finds great strength from her roots in the barrio, and who knows better than to take herself too seriously, even as she struggles with the anguish of making sense - and making love - in a world she feels compelled to write about. With a multiplicity of moods tumbling through its lines - joyous and introspective, tender and ruthless, self-mocking and sincere, often funny and sometimes wild and rude - Loose Woman offers intoxicating poems of extraordinary insight and vivid imagination

As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, "Have you seen Marie?" the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning."--Jacket

A medida que Sandra y Rosi peinan las calles de San Antonio--preguntando por todas partes y poniendo volantes-- ¿Has visto a Mar?a? hace gala de la habilidad de esta querida autora de contar cuentos llenos de magia, en un relato que nos recuerda c?mo el amor, aun cuando desaparece, no se pierde por siempre
