"Boricua is what Puerto Ricans call one another as a term of endearment, respect, and cultural affirmation; it is a timeless declaration that transcends gender and color. Boricua is a powerful word that tells the origin and history of the Puerto Rican people."
--From the Introduction
From the sun-drenched beaches of a beautiful, flamboyan-covered island to the cool, hard pavement of the fierce South Bronx, the remarkable journey of the Puerto Rican people is a rich story full of daring defiance, courageous strength, fierce passions, and dangerous politics--and it is a story that continues to be told today. Long ignored by Anglo literature studies, here are more than fifty selections of poetry, fiction, plays, essays, monologues, screenplays, and speeches from some of the most vibrant and original voices in Puerto Rican literature.

"Selection of poetry, stories, drama, and essays by 40 Puerto Rican writers, late-19th - late-20th centuries. Organized into thematic categories such as 'History and Politics' and 'Anxiety and Assimilation.' Introduction by Santiago makes clear his goal, that the book 'will provide us with answers to our innermost questions of identity.' Majority of texts originally written in English or 'Spanglish'; translations from Spanish range from good to excellent"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.… (more)
