Reviews

When the Greater American People (from Alaska to Patagonia) finally emerge, the world will point to cultural-political imaginations like Alfred Arteaga's as having been essential to that epic story. The scintillating linguistic achievements in these works urge us towards a post-national (post-surveillance) commons where intertwined destinies can freely sing and dance.--Rodrigo Toscano, author of Explosion Rocks Springfield

Alfred Arteaga's poems have the courage of dislocation, moved in underworld descent, migration, prophecy, protest, starry skies, and heteroglossia. Gathered at last into a single book, Xicancuicatl is an epic cycle for our times.--Edgar Garcia, author of Skins of Columbus: A Dream Ethnography

Xicancuicatl collects some of the most challenging and beautiful poetry from the last fin de siecle, but it does so without a whiff of museum mustiness because the topics and tactics engaged by Arteaga speak directly to a world energized by a new understanding of the urgency of addressing the social and political exigencies of race in poetry, and through poetic means.--Craig Dworkin, author of Dictionary Poetics: Toward a Radical Lexicography
