Reaching for the Mainland & Selected New Poems

Judith Ortiz Cofer


This work includes a selection of additional poems along with those from Reaching for the Mainland, a body of poems that appeared in the collection Triple Crown. This collection reveals the author's growth in her art and also expands upon some themes that run through the earlier poems, particularly those dealing with family and cultural issues.

". . . Cofer's warm, intimate use of language is always inviting and appealing." —Library Journal
