Description

A strong, richly lyric synthesis of Spanish, North African, Caribbean, and North and South American cultures.

Renowned for his pioneering mixture of both Spanish and English in poetry and prose, Cruz has now incorporated Arabic language and North African culture into his unique poetic idiom. As Cruz builds poetic bridges between Arab-influenced Spain, Spanish influenced North Africa, African influenced Puerto Rico, and an electrified Latino New York, he uncovers the confluence between their various geographies, histories, languages, and mythologies.
