Description

Recognized by "The New York Times Book Review" as one of the most remarkable books of poems in 2001, and winner in 2012 of the prestigious Pulitzer Prize of Poetry, "Vida en Marte" suggests that discovering the enigmas of the universe is not the question. This is why Tracy K. Smith wrote these poems after the death of her father, who was a prominent engineer on the Hubble Telescope. It is then that Smith elevated her eyes towards the stars to build her Martian metaphor, a synonym of the unknown, the mysterious place where her father has vanished. But, at the same time, she focuses her telescope on the specific, intimate, and even ordinary things of daily life.show more
