Thirst by Eva Maria Saavedra

Winner of the 2014 Chapbook Fellowship

Selected and introduced by Marilyn Hacker

Saavedra is a poet of this moment who draws from and builds on what other poetry, of all periods, has given her. Her poetry can be read as a new voice in the poetry of the women’s movement, in which the “the personal is political” meant, as any storyteller knows, that a minute interpersonal exchange can have wide ramifications, can reflect on and cast light on things much larger than itself.
