Poetry. Fiction. Drama. Latino/Latina Studies. Edited by Carmen Giménez Smith, with John Chávez. The contemporary literary moment the anthology ANGELS OF THE AMERICLYPSE: AN ANTHOLOGY OF NEW LATIN@ WRITING attempts to capture is one defined by diversity, various points of view, literary styles and voices, topical concerns, and senses of self. Not only have these writers widened the field, they have forged new inquiry into their own experiences of the world, as they live in it and understand it. Writing in forms of lyric, short short fiction, nonfictional prose, and in various degrees and forms of experimentation, this collection represents one of the first efforts, in years, to include a critical introduction to the writers' poetry or prose, their literary work, and their own aesthetic statements meant to express their distinct literary presence in American letters.
