Summary

Este título combina la poesía de figuras literarias tan importantes como Sandra Cisneros, Julia Álvarez y Ana Castillo con el trabajo de una segunda generación de poetas del movimiento poschicano cuyas asombrosas y originales voces se están recién descubriendo. Los cuarenta y siete autores latinos declaman desde Estados Unidos, de Nueva York hasta Dakota del Norte. Sus raíces están en México y en el Caribe, Argentina, Perú, Brasil y El Salvador. Sin embargo, su trabajo está delimitado por temas culturales comunes, tales como la identidad, el bilingüismo, el machismo y la opresión política, y por alusiones recurrentes a la Virgen de Guadalupe, Sor Juana de la Cruz, Frida Kahlo, y otras figuras aztecas. Además, hay un espíritu de unidad aparente en las imágenes y las vibraciones sensuales de su lengua poética. íFloricanto sí! es una colección asombrosa que interpreta a América para sí misma de nuevas maneras.
