Contemporary Mexican Poetry

Light from a Nearby Window introduces a new generation of poets who have become a driving force in Mexican literature today.

Until quite recently, contemporary Mexican poetry has been little-known and virtually unavailable to English-speaking readers. This bilingual anthology includes twenty-one poets--twelve men and nine women--all of whom have received national and international recognition. In poems about sexuality and spirituality, politics and marginalization, history and tradition, urban and rural life, they write about the unique experience of being Mexican at the end of the millennium.
