Poetry. Lartino/Latina Studies. El‚na Rivera's UNKNOWNE LAND is a brilliant, mature, deeply engaging work, whose Question is constructed through its unfolding shape -- a developing exhalation of grief and wasted opportunity, both classical in its references and recasting of historic quest/myth, as well as expansively modern in its resistance to these known parameters. Rivera's writing is contemplative and thickly quiet, then bell-clear with linguistically researched tones of word on word, her ear perfectly pitched -- Kathleen Fraser. El‚na Rivera was awarded the Francis Jaffer Book Award for UNKNOWNE LAND. She is also the author of WALE: OR, THE CORSE, available from SPD.
