Realms of the Mothers: The First Decade of Dos Madres Press


Dos Madres Press is pleased to announce the publication of an anthology of poems from its first ten years. Edited by Richard Hague, Realms of The Mothers contains work by sixty-eight poets from throughout the United States and beyond. Hague says of the anthology, “It is not possible to generalize about all these Dos Madres poets, beyond claiming their universal mastery of craft. Beyond that, the diversity of theme, subject, form, diction, and speaker echoes what I, a former collector of beetles, loved about the insect order Coleoptera: a tremendous range of size, structure, color, habitat, life cycle… Likewise, Realms of the Mothers shows in the domain of poetry a rapturous fondness for, and extensive expression of, a similarly multifarious creation.”
