Post-Revolution Caribbean Poetry: A Reading
Saturday, November 19, 2016 @ 8:00 am
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Elisa Albo’s collection of poetry, Passage to America, navigates the shoals of family history, geopolitics and the immigrant experience with an acute attention to detail. Sandra M. Castillo’s collection of poems, Eating Moors and Christians, probes the complicated convergence of memory and truth. In House of Lords and Commons, the revelatory and vital new collection of poems from the winner of the 2013 Whiting Writers’ Award in poetry, Ishion Hutchinson returns to the difficult beauty of the Jamaican landscape with remarkable lyric precision. In Cuban-American poet Gustavo Pérez Firmat’s collection, The Last Exile, the author laments not only the erasure of a birthplace, but the end of ways of life.
