Summary

Shakespeare’s delightful romantic comedy about separated siblings, a woman in disguise, and a confounding love triangle. After Viola is shipwrecked in an exotic land on the coast of the Adriatic, she is convinced her twin brother, Sebastian, has been lost at sea. In a quest for survival, she dons men’s clothing, assumes the name Cesario, and takes a position in service of a duke. The duke recruits the help of “Cesario” to woo his beloved Olivia, who has steadfastly refused his advances, resisting romantic attachments as she mourns the loss of her father and brother. But soon, Olivia does succumb to a passionate love—for the person she thinks is a man named Cesario—in this rollicking play by the brilliant Bard.

    Amy Shimshon-Santo's EVEN THE MILKY WAY IS UNDOCUMENTED is a testament to the lost, the loved, the courageous. Each poem is the past and the future. Each page turns for those built by families that span political borders -- families that see borders as nothing more than lines drawn by an invisible hand that's long forgotten that we belong to the earth and not the other way around.

    Duende, that dark and elusive force described by Federico García Lorca, is the creative and ecstatic power an artist seeks to channel from within. It can lead the artist toward revelation, but it must also, Lorca says, accept and even serenade the possibility of death. Tracy K. Smith's bold second poetry collection explores history and the intersections of folk traditions, political resistance, and personal survival. Duende gives passionate testament to suppressed cultures, and allows them to sing.
