Summary
  • "I find it so easy to forget / that I'm just a girl who is expected / to live / without thoughts. "Opposing slavery in Cuba in the nineteenth century was dangerous. The most daring abolitionists were poets who veiled their work in metaphor. Of these, the boldest was Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda, nicknamed Tula. In passionate, accessible verses of her own, Engle evokes the voice of this book-loving feminist and abolitionist who bravely resisted an arranged marriage at the age of fourteen, andwas ultimately courageous enough to fight against injustice. Historical notes, excerpts, and source notes round out this exceptional tribute
  • Free verse evokes the voice of Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, a book-loving writer, feminist, and abolitionist who courageously fought injustice in nineteenth-century Cuba
