Description: As we approach the new century, Latino poetry is in the midst of its most vital and productive period. Work by Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Cuban Americans has changed the course of contemporary American writing forever. And it has done this by tapping into the sounds of everyday life, reaffirming the idea that in the colorful language of daily experience, readers will find the tools they need to preserve their own culture while also evolving in the modem world.

Touching the Fire recognizes the excitement of this movement by focusing on only a few of its best practitioners and by presenting a substantial portion of each poet's work. Rather than introducing as many voices as possible, this collection sets itself apart by introducing us to only the most seminal voices -- but as deeply as possible.

Some of these poets -- Martin Espada, Lorna Dee Cervantes, and Victor Hernandez Cruz, for example -- have been writing and publishing a long time. Some are only starting their careers. But they were all chosen because they best represent the strongest elements of modem Latino poetry-a confidence of language in its many forms, a gift for shattering emotional honesty, and an ear for the rhythms of a vibrant culture.
