The Collected Poems of Esdras Parra


Anyway, this collection gathers the entire body of published poetry by Esdras Parra, who was an acclaimed author in Venezuela, not just as writer of fiction, poetry, and criticism but also for her work as an editor (she co-founded the journal Imagen) and translator. In other words, her output was extraordinary, especially in light of the fact that after she transitioned during the seventies and experienced an intense backlash for being a trans woman, she continued to create innovative work, which was recognized at a national level, until she passed away in 2004. Parra's work is now out of print, and to my knowledge it hasn't been translated apart from my own efforts, so this book is also something of an archival effort - I'm doing my best to keep her writing and her memory alive for future generations of queer and trans people, especially those with roots in Latin America.
