The more than 260 poems by some 145 poets presented in this anthology emerge from New York City’s Nuyorican Poets Café, a Lower East Side cultural institution known for bringing on the era of the poetry slam, or public recital of poems competitively graded by audience. This volume embodies participatory performance poetry with an urban groundswell behind it – oral, multicultural, political, uninhibited. “Hear this book with your eyes!” Notes on the Poets. 514p.
