Description


WINNER OF THE 2021 WORDS WITHOUT BORDERS--ACADEMY OF AMERICAN POETS POEMS IN TRANSLATION CONTEST


No Gods Live Here, the first book-length collection by a woman from S o Tom to appear in English, is grounded in the lush islands' history of slavery, colonialism, and independence.


A career-spanning collection from giant of Santomean poetry Concei o Lima, No Gods Live Here catalogues and memorializes the cruelties and triumphs of the country's past alongside the poet's own childhood poems set against the tiny island nation's distinctive flora and geography. Through vivid imagery, Lima evokes S o Tom and Pr ncipe, from popular Santomean music to imagery of fishermen on the beach, while remaining ever aware of the subjective meeting of memory, time, and place.


Through poetry, Lima unites past and present to resurrect hope in human creation and the possibility of metamorphosis.
