Margaret Randall's new collection, She Becomes Time, continues her legacy of poetry that combines the intimate with the global, history with feeling, memory with the world we touch and see, showing--always in surprising ways--how these impact and intersect each other. The book begins with a group of poems about her childhood, in which the poet reveals secrets and asks unexpected questions. It ends with breathtaking series about Mexico and Cuba, countries the poet knows well and which she takes on without any idealization. Rigoberto Gonzalez writes of this book: ""Randall's words have always been sobering reminders of the fractures in our broken world, though she never delivers her wisdom without hope... A gem of a book from a true literary legend!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The circular form adorning the cover of Margaret Randall s remarkable new collection, "She Becomes Time," spirals from its wide outer circumference inward to form a perfect symbol for a poetry which seamlessly connects the toughness of a wide-ranging world perspective with the tenderness of intimate love poetry, proving in poem after poem how they are inexorably linked. From more personal tales of parents and children, lovers and friends, to shattering portraits of students being massacred in Mexico, farmers toiling in the Andean mountains, a girlchild working a loom in an Egyptian factory, a Vietnamese monk immolating himself in protest against an unjust war, the lessons of decades of activism and reflection are captured in the meticulous detail only a poet in full charge of her craft can attain. Spanning continents and memories, the present and the ancestral, love and struggle, Randall s She Becomes Time is both a wise and mature work of art." Susan Sherman, award winning poet, playwright, essayist and founding editor of "IKON" magazine."
"What a cause for celebration: a new book by the incomparable artist and activist Margaret Randall, whose words have always been sobering reminders of the fractures in our broken world, though she never delivers her wisdom without hope. The future of poetry is safe, she tells us, and indeed, each poem in She Becomes Time affirms that glorious and necessary truth. A gem of a book from a true literary legend!" Rigoberto Gonzalez, author, Unpeopled Eden ""
