Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The title of this ravishing collection of poems by 25 Latino and Latina writers can be read as an allusion to change and to the fact that poetry is a force, like wind, that knows no borders. In his rich and orienting introduction, poet and editor Aragon affirms that Latino poetry is evolving and extending its reach in sync with the vitality and influence of Latino life and culture. Since the publication of two earlier Latino poetry anthologies edited by Latino poets, Virgil Suarez's Paper Dance (1995) and Ray Gonzalez's ouching the Fire (1998), Latino and Latina poets have continued to write poems that can be described as political, while also exploring profoundly personal and resonantly mythic themes, delving into history, and imagining settings as diverse as the U.S.-Mexico border, a rain forest, a snow-covered street, a grocery store, a strip club, and a sacred place. Whether inspired by family, love, despair, poems by Rilke, or a painting by Jose Clemente Orozco, the poets gathered here are involved in the infinite possibilities of language. Donna Seaman
