"Pueblos De Puerto Rico En Poesia/Puerto Rican Towns in Poetry," is a beautiful, and meaningful tribute to all of Puerto Rico's 78 towns in poetry and images. Poet Joaquin Hernandez Jimenez , honors every Puerto Rican town and city from Adjuntas to Yauco with poems and odes celebrating their uniqueness, nicknames, landmarks, and other characteristics that set them apart from one another. Even the district of Rio Piedras (which is part of San Juan) and the uninhabited island of Mona are also celebrated in separate poems. Hernandez Jimenez's poetry, which can be moving and amusing, is a delight to read.
If you are Puerto Rican, or an admirer of the island's culture and people, then I highly recommend this book. By reading this compilation of poetry, you will get a better portrait of life, traditions, and other aspects that Puerto Ricans treasured about their island and towns. In addition to the tribute to all of the island's towns, Rio Piedras, and Mona Island, the book contains four additional poems that celebrate Puerto Rico's beauty and people. "Viviras" and "Habla Roberto Clemente" are two tributes to the island's greatest baseball player, Roberto Clemente. The Carolina, Puerto Rico native rose to prominence with the Pittsburgh Pirates and became a major league star during the 1960's. After organizing a relief effort to help victims of a terrible earthquake in Nicaragua, Clemente showed that as a professional baseball player he still had a heart when it came to those who needed help. However, he died when the plane with relief supplies crashed into the waters of the Caribbean Sea shortly after taking off from San Juan.
