Verses for the waiting childhood

Versos para la infancia que espera

Paulina Jara Straussmann & Claudia Blin

Claraboya | 2021 | 40 pages | 21 x 21 cm | hardcover

Crowded streets, cold cells, war in a country perhaps not so far away, a hospital ward, warm arms like a cradle. These are some of the many spaces included in this collection of poems that invites us to reflect on the different forms of childhood.

How does a cooing sound behind bars, how is to try to rest under the noise of the bombs? Or how does it feel to play between shootings? Each poem goes through a different scenario that reflects realities ignored by the traditional portrait of childhood.
