Made of Dream by Stephanie Borges
In a short collection of poems about dreams, Stephanie Borges observes how images and language can create experiences of freedom for Black women. In her verses, individual and collective experiences are evoked by voices that dissolve and blur the boundaries of the self. The tension between body and language emerges among the many possible meanings of a dream. As an element of waking life, imagination blends with daily tasks, because a dream is also something that demands work, dedication and choices, just like writing.
