About this product
- DescriptionCanto Hondo / Deep Song hors the Andalusian deep lyric, or canto hondo, poetry of famed Spanish writer Federico Garcia Lorca through rich and expressive poems. Francisco X. Alarcon deftly places Spanish and English side-by-side in this bilingual collection that is a modern meditation on love, self, loss, and universal truths. In this new collection, Alarcon creates poetry with roots in Gypsy songs clapped out in the distinctively short rhythms of flamenco music. Each page lifts the heart and stirs the soul by delving deep into the struggle for self and sexual identity. Canto Hondo / Deep Song includes 106 poems divided into four sections that articulate struggle, otherness, and the meaning of the poetic landscape. Like Lorca, Alarcon seeks out the fault lines where the lyric and the political bleed productively and proactively into one ather. An important voice in Chica and GLBT poetry, Alarcon writes with a complex, emotionally powerful style that is accessible to students and all lovers of poetry and poetic traditions.
