Xicano Duende: A Select Anthology
Selection and introduction by Rigoberto González
Xicano Duende: A Select Anthology commemorates the prolific career of one of Chicano literature's most enduring poetic voices. The collection, which includes selections from Alurista's Tunaluna (Aztlán Libre Press, 2010) and three other volumes, chronicles the poet's writings, which range from scathing social and political criticism to erotic and provocative verse to whimsical wordplay. Through it all, Alurista reveals the struggle and history of his life and Chicano heritage in language that inflames and inspires.
