Sin puertas visibles is a fully bilingual anthology that features emerging women poets whose work provides a taste of the adventurous new spirit infusing Mexican literature. All eleven poets represented have had at least one book published in Mexico, yet none of their work has been translated into English until now. Featuring the work of: Cristina Rivera-Garza, Carla Faesler, Ang\u00e9lica Tornero, Ana Bel\u00e9n L\u00f3pez, Silvia Eugenia Castillero, M\u00f3nica Nepote, Dana Gelinas, Mar\u00eda Rivera, Ofelia P\u00e9rez Sep\u00falveda, Dorantes, and Laura Sol\u00f3zano. Mexico poesses one of Latin America's most important poetic traditions, but its depth and range are virtually unknown to readers north of the border. Reflecting the diversity and complexity f contemporary mexican poetry, the poems presented here are by turns meditative and explosive, sensuous and inventive, ironic and tender--in short, they are subversive, provocative, and bold.
