Alurista- XICANO DUENDE: A SELECT ANTHOLOGY

XICANO DUENDE: A SELECT ANTHOLOGY

poetry by Alurista

selection and introduction by Rigoberto Gonzalez

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 (Aztlan Libre Press, 2010) and three other volumes, chronicles the poet’s writings that 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.

Alurista was born in 1947 in Mexico City and migrated to San Diego, California, when he was thirteen. He holds a PhD in Spanish literature from the University of California, San Diego. His work played a central role in the Chicano movement of the late 1960s and 1970s and continues to inspire new generations of artists and activists.
