Introduction by Julia Alvarez
Published by Tin House Books
"Resistencia could not be more timely. It is a stunning collection of revelations and witness. My only complaint: I wish it could be ten times longer. Indispensable.”
— Luis Alberto Urrea
With a powerful and poignant introduction from Julia Alvarez, Resistencia: Poems of Protest and Revolution is an extraordinary collection, rooted in a strong tradition of protest poetry and voiced by icons of the movement and by some of the most exciting voices today. The poets of Resistencia explore feminist, queer, indigenous, urban, and ecological themes alongside historically prominent protests against imperialism, dictatorships, and economic inequality. Within this momentous collection, poets representing every Latin American country grapple with identity, place, and belonging, resisting easy definitions to render a nuanced and complex portrait of language in rebellion.
