Pivotal Voices, Era of Transition: Toward a 21st Century PoeticsRigoberto González 2017
This book fills a glaring gap in existing poetry scholarship by focusing exclusively on writers of color, and particularly on Latino poetry. González makes important observations about the relevance, urgency, and exquisite craft of the work coming from writers who represent marginalized communities. His insightful connections between the Latino, African American, Asian American, and Native American literatures persuasively position them as a collective movement critiquing, challenging, and reorienting the direction of American poetry with their nuanced and politicized verse. González's inclusive vision covers a wide landscape of writers, opening literary doors for sexual and ethnic minorities.
