Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. "Pablo Medina's poems belong to the real world even while they move across the borders of dreams and wild imagination. They sustain a tone that's both sophisticated and innocent, delivering fresh news of what it feels like to be alive and human. I love these poems for their music and vivid imagery. I love their clarity, whether evoking city or bull pasture or bedroom, or an interior landscape. I love following the poet's surprising thought, as he delves into the heart and the mind and the world"—Joan Larkin.

Pablo Medina's poetry has been called "exuberant," "provocative," and "nothing short of linguistic mastery." Born in Big Banana Havana, Medina grew up in Big Apple New York. Fruit, he loves fruit. He longs for Big Papaya, pink and juicy, of which he can't get enough. He is also a novelist, translator, and essayist. His books of poetry include THE MAN WHO WROTE ON WATER (Hanging Loose Press, 2011), THE FLOATING ISLAND (White Pine Press, 1999), and ARCHING INTO THE AFTERLIFE (Bilingual Review Press, 1991). Medina lives in Boston, in an exile surrounded by icicles, and is on the faculty at Emerson College and Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.
