Poetry. Latino/a Studies. This is the newest volume of poetry from the SUBPRESS COLLECTIVE, a group of poets who have pledged a portion of their income each year to support the eventual publication of all poets in the collective. Torres's poems are visually striking, using a variety of layout and design strategies, but they are equally interesting for the way seemingly-autobiographical moments filter into and through the formal fractures. And Torres does, in fact, have a wicked sense of humor-ous.
Edwin Torres is the author of eight books of poetry, including XOETEOX (Wave Books, 2018), Ameriscopia (University of Arizona Press), YES THING NO THING (Roof Books), THE POPEDOLOGY OF AN AMBIENT LANGUAGE (Atelos Books), and editor of the forthcoming anthology, Out Of Each Other: An Anthology Of The Body In Language (Counterpath Press). He has performed worldwide and taught his process-oriented workshop, "Brainlingo: Writing The Voice Of The Body," across the nation.Author City: New York, NY USA
