Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. LGBT Studies. Translated from the Spanish by the author. Bilingual Edition. This is a work of rare beauty and intelligence. Through tierra, fuego, agua, and aire, Alarc#65533;n takes us on a journey into our own psyche and through the concerns of our world--immigration and identity, the fragility and strength of our natural environment, the many faces of love, and the politics of a world in great need of illumination. Through everything he gives voice to our own unspoken feelings, and does so with delicate yet powerful language. His language is lean and brief; his poems puncture the skin and pierce the heart. These poems are a constant source of wisdom and grace. In these pages Francisco recapitulates the last 50 years; the struggles of so many, the dreams and the actions of millions seeking to emerge from a world that has been compromised.
