The back of the book:
“Jaguar sent me a lover…” says aloud Donna Snyder in The Tongue Has Its Secrets. Powerful images, passion between lines, revisiting female mythological figures, and questioning violence against women are crucial in these poems. Donna reinvents herself through these stanzas, and raises her voice in each of the polychromatic verses full of Latino as well as north European myths, full of words as vaporous signs. Let’s walk along her side and discover the secrets of the tongue.
