In candid, sensuous, and startlingly fresh poetic expressions, the 1980s women poets of Mexico represent a new, democratic era in their national poetry.

These 22 women poets—most appearing for the first timein English translation—express an imaginative and liberated female consciousness that enriches the Mexican literary landscape.
