Memories of the Future: The Daybooks of Tina Modotti: Poems by Margaret Gibson



Margaret Gibson's Memories of the Future is based on Modotti's vivid but enigmatic life. Drawn from daybooks that Gibson imagines Modotti to have kept at the end of her life in Mexico City, these poems give us the reflections of a woman whose intensity and vision, evident in her own photographs, are matched by the depth and breadth of her experience and personal transformation in times of deep social and political upheaval.

If we could look into the future, would we go there? In the spiral of hunger’s discontent, would we go? Somehow we go. New societies are born much wider than our minds. And if for a moment we doubt, our bodies remember. They believe. We make our bodies available to death, and therefore live. It is the hero’s way―

In their attention to beauty and sensuality, light and detail, these poems capture the life of the photographer. In their unhesitating confrontation with pain and loss, they reveal the harsh realities of revolutionary life. Memories of the Future skillfully unfolds the political and artistic consciousness of a woman of sensibility and strong beliefs. It is a major new effort from one of America’s best young poets.
