Engle ⪷ Starred Review Engles historical novel in verse is a fictionalized biography of the nineteenth century Cuban abolitionist poet Gertrudis Gmez de Avellaneda, known as Tula Told in multiple voices, Engles elegant verses, rich in simile and metaphor, focus on the poets life as a teenager Forbidden access to books because her mother believes reading and writing make women unattractive, Tula escapes to a nearby convent There, she discovers volumes by the rebel poet Jos Mara de Heredia, whose words feed her own rebellious spirit, which is exemplified by her rejection of two arranged marriages I long to write like Heredia, she muses, but what do I know of great cities and the wide lives of men Im just a silenced girl My stories are simple tales of emotion Seen as an outcast and a madwoman, she is sent to the country, where she falls in love with Sab, a freed slave, and continues to write about equality for slaves and for women Engles richly evocative verses conjure up a time
