The Island of My Hunger
The Island of My Hunger
Cuban Poetry Today

Edited by Francisco Morán

This bilingual anthology, compiled and edited by Francisco Morán with the collaboration of a superb group of Spanish-English translators, presents a dramatic selection of work by a new generation of Cuban poets to whom North American readers have as yet had little or no access. Coming at a critical time in the history of the island, these poets explore themes of identity, exile, and the multiple cultures that form their experience. Island of My Hunger stands apart from previously published anthologies in that it brings together poets living in, and in exile from, Fidel Castro's Cuba.

Contributors include: Norge Espinosa, Omar Perez, Alessandra Molina, Antonio Jose Ponte, Soleida Rios, Felix Lizarraga, German Guerra, Reina Maria Rodriguez, and others. With translations by Peter Bush, Elizabeth Bell, Cola Franzen, Mark Schafer, Nancy Gates Madsen, Todd Ramon Ochoa, and Anne MacLean.
