About this product
- DescriptionThe Other Tiger is an eclectic anthology of contemporary Latin American poetry in translation from Spanish, drawing together 156 poems by 97 poets from 16 countries in facing page text. Among the mix of poets are established names such as Raul Zurita, Daniel Samoilovich, Diana Bellessi, Dario Jaramillo, Juan Manuel Roca, Carmen Olle, Tedi Lopez Mills and Fabio Morabito. Younger poets include Julian Herbert, Wendy Guerra, Luis Felipe Fabre, Andres Neuman, Alejandro Crotto, and Malu Urriola. The poems are organized thematically and conjure vast landscapes and small moments of tenderness; they explore the detailed introspection of individuals, and confront repressive political regimes and the consequences of narco gang violence. Above all, the book vividly reflects the many contrasts present in the lives and literatures of the peoples of Latin America.
