TRACY K. SMITH is the author of The Body’s Question. She received a Whiting Writers’ Award in 2005 and a 2004 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award. She lives in Brooklyn and teaches at Princeton University.
Every poem is the story of itself.

Pure conflict. Its own undoing.

Breeze of dreams, then certain death.

                      —from “History”

Duende, that dark and elusive force described by Federico Garcia Lorca, is the creative and ecstatic power an artist seeks to channel from within. It can lead the artist toward revelation, but it must also, Lorca says, accept and even serenade the possibility of death. Tracy K. Smith’s bold second poetry collection explores history and the intersections of folk traditions, political resistance, and personal survival. Duende gives passionate testament to suppressed cultures, and allows them to sing.
