Review: The Woman I Kept to Myself This is one of the best books I've ever read which explores the immigrant experience (some of the works reminded me of Pat Mora's "Immigrants" which I teach in lit classes. I may use some of the poems in my writing class at Morton, and I want to read some of Alvarez's other books.
Review: The Woman I Kept to Myself I'm a little sheepish about having read this given the title but it's actually quite a nice collection of poems. You can see how much her writing has matured since Homecoming.
Review: The Woman I Kept to Myself Found myself writing passages from many poems in my journal. Truly the mark of a good book!
Review: The Woman I Kept to Myself This was a great collection of prose poetry. They were all very accessible and easy to understand, and yet touched on some tough topics. I made sure to jot down some of her best lines, as she has some thoughts that are good advice/things to keep in mind for everyone.
LibraryThing Review This collection of poetry is a great addition to the American immigrant experience shelf, in particular the Spanish-speaking, Latin American immigrant experience shelf, perhaps right next to Ana
Review: The Woman I Kept to Myself I really liked this book. I don't know what else to say about it except that I found myself being able to relate to the subjects of a good portion of the poems. I would recommend this book of poems to anyone.
