Summary

Bluestown Mockingbird Mambo is Sandra Maria Esteves' third collection of poetry. Her first book of poems, Yerba Buena (1981), was revolutionary in establishing an urban Latina woman's choice and esthetic. Bluestown Mockingbird Mambo takes all of the rhythmic, bluesy potential and the women's poetic militancy of Yerba Buena and brings them to full, resplendent, funky bloom. In this volume she blends the oral tradition with the literary tradition in a fusion of spiritual, blues and women's poetics. "Esteves is a magician who pulls forty-eight poems out of her hat...Esteves speaks with punch and politically-astute vigor about the realities of the urban poor. More importantly, however, the poetry draws a big distinction between one being economically poor and spiritually and culturally repressed".
