“Equívocos / Misconceptions is a spirited adventure, an energizing take on today’s transgressions. The project refuses a conventional reliance on generations as a method for organizing anthologies of Cuban poetry. Instead, editor Yoandy Cabrera cuts across a moment in the twenty-first century, asking what priorities writers themselves have articulated. Bilingual editorial notes contextualize a wide range of themes they explore. The poems themselves – and their translations—are by turns confiding, howling, sensual, scathing, indirect, explicit, contemplative, fierce.”

Kristin Dykstra, Saint Michael’s College

“Si muchas de las antologías de poesía cubana publicadas en la década del 90 y comienzos de los años 2000 muestran la irrupción de nuevos discursos y formas estéticas, esta es una antología para los poetas “desubicados”, un gesto crítico que pretende corregir el error de pensar la poesía a partir del concepto de generación, cuando lo más importante son las poéticas de los autores escogidos (geómetras del desastre, no-sujetos, por ejemplo). La selección de 21 poetas realizada por Yoandy Cabrera propone observar, como en una vista aérea, las redes afectivas y estéticas que los autores establecen con sus lectores desde un afuera que es también doble: del territorio nacional y de las propias lecturas realizadas hasta el momento por la crítica. Además, se trata de una iniciativa importante como proyecto formador de nuevos traductores de la poesía cubana al inglés, a partir del trabajo realizado por Cabrera junto a sus estudiantes.”
