Overview

Communion, a third collection of poetry by Pat Mora, builds upon her previous writings and her new experiences to provide a healing voice, additional depth and maturity, and an international perspective in considering the art of poetry itself, male/female relationships, separation from children, homeland and tradition. The concerns of our domestic culture in the United States are seen here from within the framework of the Third World in Asia and Latin America.

The poetic works of Pat Mora once more explore the themes of womanhood, political and sexual borders, the Southwest and interior landscapes, all in a rich, lyrical style.
