520 |a Pivotal Voices, Era of Transition gathers Rigoberto Gonzalez's most important essays and book reviews that consider the work of emerging poets whose identities and political positions are transforming what readers expect from contemporary poetry. Many of these voices represent intersectional communities, such as queer writers of color like Natalie Diaz, Danez Smith, Ocean Vuong and Eduardo C. Corral, and many writers, such as Carmen Gimenez Smith and David Tomas Martinez, have deep connections to their Latino communities. Collectively these writers are enriching American poetry to reflect a more diverse, panoramic and socially conscious literary landscape. This much needed look at diverse voices also features essays on the poets' literary ancestors including Juan Felipe Herrera, Alurista, Francisco X. Alarcon and speeches that address the need for poetry as agency. This book fills a glaring gap in contemporary literary scholarship. Very little existing poetry scholarship focuses exclusively on writers of color, particularly Latino poetry, a field in which Gonzalez is considered an authority. The book makes important observations about the relevance and urgency of the work coming from writers representing marginalized communities, many of whom will undoubtedly become the most influential voices of their generation. Gonzalez is the first to identity them as such and to illustrate why their work is as exquisitely crafted as it is socially resonant.
