Dejar atrás el agua. Nueve nuevos poetas cubanos - Fruela Fernández & Juan Antonio Bernier
The Cosmopoética Poetry Festival has travelled to Cuba to discover some of their poets. The result? An anthology of work by some of the more recent poetic talent from the island.
This book is filled with a variety of styles produced at the turn of the century that don’t lose sight of their uniquely intense Cuban heritage: from Lezama Lima to José Kozer or Lorenzo García Vega to the ‘Diáspora(s)?’ group. Nine new (at least in Europe) poets born between 1970 and 1986 writing from the perspective of diversity, far from dogmatic posturing that in literary history attempts to identify authenticity using limitation.
