Chiqui Vicioso


This book is a small trilingual tome – one long poem with translations from Spanish to English and French.

The book is the natural evolution of [the author´s] rapprochement to the culture that surrounds her, the plural and linguistically hybrid Caribbean to which she belongs, an act of reconstruction and reconciliation through poetry”. - Daisy Cocco de Filippis, Dominican scholar

Vicioso “seeks the origin of her native land and the poet herself is the island, land circled by water, rhythm and voice tinged with silence. [. . .] she recognizes herself, reconstructs herself in the word and sees all that is root and flight. . . She travels, journeys: signs and myths flourish; rituals are enacted. In the local, she becomes universal, in the ephemeral she sows eternity.”
- Adela Fernández, Dominican scholar

Award-winning poet, playwright essayist, and ambassador, CHIQUI VICIOSO was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on June 21, 1948. Her master’s degree in education and post-graduate studies in cultural administration were obtained, respectively, at Columbia University and the Getulio Vargas Foundation, Brazil. Her work includes Viaje desde el agua, Un extraño ulular traía el viento, Volver a vivir: imágenes de Nicaragua, Julia de Burgos, Algo que decir: ensayos sobre literatura femenina Internamiento, and Salomé Ureña de Henríquez (1850-1897): A cien años de magisterio. She has written plays such as Wish-ky Sour, Salomé U: cartas a una ausencia, Desvelos [dialogue between Emily Dickinson and Salomé Ureña], Perrerías, and NUYOR/islas.
