Bilingual Press/Editorial Bilingüe, 1996 - Poetry - 72 pages
0 Reviews
A poet with a strong commitment to social problems, Alurista continues to explore racism and bigotry in his newest collection of poetry. These poems are angry, full of energy; they call us to action. Like the poems of e.e. cummings, Alurista's work is at once simple and highly complex. He frequently begins a poem with a playful tone, but then expands it to shed light on some of the most important issues of our time. About half of the poems in this collection are in Spanish and the rest in English.
