Seductive, earthy, at times confessional, Sandra Cisneros' 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 imagining.
