Voyage in Dry Season

Victor Peñaranda


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1995

This book contains 46 poems in English. In the introduction, the author writes: “Once upon a sigh, I can clearly recall, in a remote / And lonely fishing village the people wept / While they tore down the walls of their schoolhouse / So they could recycle the wood into crude / Coffins / Meant for twelve children who died of a disease, / A sweeping sickness which struck them helpless. / I must hold on to this voice, this choice, and never / Ask forgiveness for traveling in my own land / Where the constant fear is to live unhappily ever after.”
