Anne Frank
when you were just
thirteen
you knew death was stalking you;
you were attentive
to its signs,
those fists banging on the shadowy doors.

What People are Saying About This

Isabel Allende
"With transparency and authenticity, Marjorie Agosín leads us through the universe of Anne Frank. With her poems as our guide, we transverse history's darkest corridors, yet are reminded of the endurance of the human spirit. This is a poetry that is both memorable and haunting."
Claribel Alegria
"Marjorie Agosín, one of the most lyrical and refined voices in Latin America, offers us in this book about Anne Frank further proof of her depth and sensibility. It is a book that must be read, illuminating poems that unveil the spirit of two extraordinary women."
William F. Schulz
"In language as lyrical as it is luminous, Marjorie Agosín retrieves Anne Frank from the realm of cliché and offers her to us afresh - a Rosetta Stone to the world's suffering, both in Anne's era and our own."
Liv Ullman
Her poetry vibrates with electricity and compassion for those who cannot speak for themselves. She cpatures the soul of the lost and helpless. Her Anne Frank poems are among the best I've read.
