"Tula" a ruined Toltec capital; a Russian city known for its accordions; Tagalog for poem. Prismatic, startling, rich with meaning yet sparely composed, Chris Santiago s debut collection of poems begins with one word and transforms it, in a dazzling sleight of hand, into a multivalent symbol for the immigrant experience."Tula" Santiago reveals to readers a distant land devastated by war."Tula" its music beckons in rhythms, time signatures, and lullabies. "Tula" can the poem, he seems to ask, build an imaginative bridge back to a family lost to geography, history, and a forgotten language? Inspired by the experiences of the blood stranger the second-generation immigrant who does not fully acquire the language of his parents"Tula" paints the portrait of a mythic homeland that is part ghostly underworld, part unknowable paradise. Language splinters. Impossible islands form an archipelago across its landscape. A mother sings lullabies and a father works the graveyard shift in St. Paulwhile in the Philippines, two dissident uncles and a grandfather send messages and telegrams from the afterlife. Deeply ambitious, a collection that examines the shortcomings and possibilities of both language and poetry themselves, "Tula" announces the arrival of a major new literary talent. "

is rooted in the American Southwest, the setting of Jimmy Santiago Baca's highly acclaimed long narrative poem, (New Directions, 1987). "Baca's evocation of this landscape," as noted, "its aridity and fertility, is nothing short of brilliant." The individual poems of Black Mesa are embedded both in the family and in the community life of the barrio, detailing births and deaths, neighbors and seasons, injustices and victories. Loosely interconnected, the poems trace a visionary biography of place.

Lorca brought an understanding of the paradox that was Spain - sensuality chafing under a rigid moral code, individual desire at war with tradition.' Manuel Duran Federico Garcia Lorca is perhaps the most celebrated of all twentieth-century Spanish writers, known not only for his plays but also for several collections of poems published both in his short lifetime and after. Lorca's poetry is steeped in the land, climate, and folklore of his native Andalusia, though he writes memorably of New York and Cuba too. Often in modernist idiom, and full of startling imagery, he evokes a world of intense feelings, silent suffering, and dangerous love. This selection balances poems from Lorca's early collections with his better-known work to give a clear vision of his poetic development. Martin Sorrell's accomplished translations are complemented by D. Gareth Walters's shrewd Introduction, with its distinctive focus on the achievements of the poet.
