Daisy Zamora
Life for Each
Poetry. 1994. Bilingual text translated by Dinah Livingstone. 70 pages. ISBN 0 904872 22 X. 5.95.

A coherent collection of personal and political poems by one of Nicaragua's most distinguished women poets, who ran the clandestine Radio Sandino.

'There is a refreshing, vital comprehensiveness to Zamora's work. Life for Each reverberates well in the sinuous translations, each poem alive and performable.' -- Poetry London

'Short personal poems whether concerning herself, her family and friends or strangers captured in incidents... It is this eye for the right detail that is her calling card.' -- Odyssey

'Close to the reality of her Nicaragua, with a physical and emotional directness easily captured in Dinah Livingstone's translations' -- Stand

'Dinah Livingstone, herself an accomplished poet, presents her translations alongside the originals. This is poetry born out of personal and political struggle, painful to read yet all the more inspiring for that.' -- Ore
