An excellent anthology of distinctly political poetry. Translated from Spanish and mostly by Central American poets, these works are by poets I would never have found otherwise, and include Espada's work himself, which is equally wonderful. What I love is that it captures the heart and soul of the working classes, and shows brilliantly how poetry can be found - I would argue even NEEDS to be found - in day to day, mundane existence.
