Frida: ¡Viva la vida! Long Live Life!

By Carmen T. Bernier-Grand

“Frida: ¡Viva la vida! Long Live Life!” uses lyrical free-verse poems which comprise the heart of a well rounded biographical work for older children. The poems, written in impassioned first-person voice, follow the arc of Frida Kahlo's life from birth to death. The opening birth poem and the closing death poem set a tone of self-determination firmly placing her in history, in her family and in her country.
