Return Flights

Tagus Press, 05/04/2016 - 96 páginas
These poems - varying from narrative to imagist to lyrical - reflect the "sodade" of Cape Verdean culture that is shaped by separation and longing - longing for the home that has been left behind and for loved ones who have departed. Cape Verdean communities extend beyond national boundaries and are paradoxically independent of place, even when inspired by it. Return Flights marks a turning point for Cape Verdean American culture, one in which a partially forgotten past becomes a starting point for possible futures, both of new transoceanic contacts and of new reinventions of culture.
