Poetry. Latinx Studies. Winner of a 2019 Foreword INDIES Award for Poetry. Longlisted for the 2020 Best Translated Book Awards. Winner of the 2020 PEN Award for Poetry in Translation. A meditation on the power and limitations of images, THE WINTER GARDEN PHOTOGRAPH began as an homage to a magazine, The Courier, published by UNESCO. Reina Maria Rodriguez used the magazine's photographs of faraway places to spark an investigation of the mental landscapes comprising her own, contemporary Havana. "I think through / the breath in you; I think through / the blood in you" precisely in striving to inhabit other worlds, she pursues the self. With the original Cuban edition of this book, Rodriguez won her second Casa de las Americas Prize for Poetry. This edition includes a set of co-translations by Kristin Dykstra and Nancy Gates Madsen, and an interview with Rodriguez, conducted by Rosa Alcala.
