A collection of poems by

Women Are Not Roses (An Arte Publico Press Book)
64 pp. Author's first complete book of poems. "Ana Castillo is one of the most widely published and anthologized voices from the Hispanic experience in the United States. Women Are Not Roses shatters the image of women as lovely, sweet adornments, more to be admired at a distance than handled, more beautiful to behold in silence than engaged in dialog. Castillo demands to be heard on this and on a variety of other social, political and esthetic issues.""Ana Castillo (born June 15, 1953) is a Mexican-American Chicana novelist, poet, short story writer, essayist, editor, playwright, translator and independent scholar. Considered one of the leading voices in Chicana experience, Castillo is known for her experimental style as a Latina novelist. Her works offer pungent and passionate socio-political comment that is based on established oral and literary traditions. Castillo's interest in race and gender issues can be traced throughout her writing career."Keywords: AMERICAN LITERATURE POETRY POEMS ANA CASTILLO WOMEN ARE NOT ROSES MEXICAN CHICANA LATIN AMERICA LITERATURE
