Synopses & Reviews

Claribel Alegría  has long been a revered voice for the struggle for self-determination in Central America, especially in her homeland, El Salvador. With nine books of poetry and prose available in English and numerous books in Spanish, she recently celebrated the 50th year since her first book publication. She was featured on Bill Moyers' "Language of Life: A Festival of Poets" program.
