Synopsis

En esta coleccion de ensayos entretejidos con poemas y folclore, Judith Ortiz Cofer cuenta la historia de como llego a ser poeta y escritora y explora su amor por las palabras, su descubrimiento de la magia del lenguaje y su lucha por sacar tiempo de donde no tenia para practicar su arte.Natural de Puerto Rico, Cofer vino a los Estados Unidos de nina. Dividida entre dos culturas y dos idiomas, temprano se dio cuenta del poder de las palabras y como ejercerlo. Descubrio su amor por la sutileza, los sonidos y los ritmos de la palabra escrita cuando una maestra, una monja catolica empenada en cambiar las tradiciones para mejorarlas, le dio a leer unos libros de literatura culta, algunos de los cuales estaban prohibidos por la Iglesia. Mas adelante, de adulta, las exigencias por parte de su familia y de su profesion hicieron dificil que Cofer contara con el tiempo para entregarse a su arte, pero la necesidad que sentia de expresarse y su determinacion a lograrlo la llevaron a encontrar soluciones que pueden ayudar a todos los artistas que se ven desafiados por limitaciones de tiempo. Cofer recuerda los cuentos familiares que le sirven de inspiracion y muestra su relevancia para todos los artistas, para todas las mujeres, para todo el mundo. Ella anima a sus lectores a reclamar el derecho a ser ellos mismos y a perseguir sus pasiones."Mujer frente al sol," un libro que divierte, instruye y cautiva, sera un recurso inestimable para estudiantes de poesia y de escritura creativa, basico en cada aula de creacion literaria, asi como una inspiracion para todos los que escriben."
