Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Poetry. Latino/a Studies. Alarcon's poems in SONNETS TO MADNESS AND OTHER MISFORTUNES/SONETOS A LA LOCURA Y OTRAS PENAS are written in the liberating Hispanic sonnet vein inaugurated by ONE HUNDRED LOVE SONNETS by Pablo Neruda. Breaking away from traditional rhyming schemes and speaking in the free running language of concrete images, various poetic currents meet and mix in response to the present Latino conjuncture in the United States, and to the human condition generally. "...Alarcon is the dark humming bird, alone, still and yet in motion in the arc of time" --Juan Felipe Herrera. Spanish, with English on facing page, translated by Francisco Aragon.
