9780393308099: Teodoro Luna's Two Kisses: Poems

"Boldly playful, gymnastic and surreal."―Leslie Ullman, Kenyon Review

"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

From the Back Cover:

'Each of his many chapters ( the book is a crowded village) is dealt with tenderly and humorously....If Rios' work is charming (and it is, amply), it is so in the sense of magic, where charms turn one thing to another and reveal essential truths.' - Booklist

From Library Journal:

To claim, as does the promotion, that "the marvelous and the real hold hands in this collection" is an overstatement. There is nothing marvelous in the flat, minimalist lines, characterized by a staccato voice using at the maximum six uncharged words per line. There is a sense of place here, presumably the Mexican-American Southwest, but the ordinary is so prevalent throughout that even that sense is destroyed. Most of the titles convey a banal quality: "Not Shaving on Some Days," "What a Boy Can Do," "Waiting for My Mother," "Fixing Tires," "How She Finds Me," etc. These poems offer no enigmas, no magic, no insights, no depth, no tension, and only a marginal sense of human drama. Devoid of subtlety and innovation, the language and structure might as well be prose. Our young Chicano/Latino poets are well advised to read Vallejo or Philip Lamatia's Touch of the Marvelous instead.
- Ivan Arguelles, Univ. of California at Berkeley
