A Mayan Astronomer in Hell's Kitchen: Poems

by

A Mayan Astronomer in Hell's Kitchen: Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his sixth collection, American Book Award winner Martín Espada has created a poetic mural. There are conquerors, slaves, and rebels from Caribbean history; the "Mayan astronomer" calmly smoking a cigarette in the middle of a New York tenement fire; a nun staging a White House vigil to protest her torture; a man on death row mourning the loss of his books; and even Carmen Miranda.

Synopsis:

"Martín Espada ....forges a new poetic language."--Dennis Loy Johnson,

About the Author

Martín Espada's The Republic of Poetry was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, teaches at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst and lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.
