BOOK SUMMARY


This volume, coedited by Carlos Aguasaco and Yrene Santos, collects the work of the sixty poets that participated in The Americas Poetry Festival of New York 2015. Authors from 21 different countries are presented here with short biographical notes and a sample or their poetry. It also includes a special dossier honoring the memory of poet William Beltrán (a.k.a. William Akcoo 1973-2011) with a bilingual sample of his poetry. Beltrán, according to Professor Carlos Aguasaco, is one of the most independent and unique poetic voices of our times.
