Sin puertas visibles (No Visible Doors) is a fully bilingual anthology featuring emerging women poets whose work provides a taste of the adventurous new writing infusing the Mexican literary tradition today. All eleven poets represented here have had at least one book published in Mexico, yet none of their work has been translated into English until now. Mexico possesses one of Latin America's most important poetic traditions, but its depth and range are virtually unknown to readers north of the border. Reflecting the diversity and complexity of contemporary Mexican poetry, the poems presented here are by turns meditative and explosive, sensuous and inventive, ironic and tender-in short, they are subversive, provocative, and bold.
