Jun 29, 2021

En A mano / By Hand Nicole Cecilia Delgado recorre su vida en Nueva York, México, Puerto Rico a través de una variedad de comunidades y economías proponiendo que la poesía es la unidad básica de un proyecto de una vida vivida con dignidad y alegría. El panfleto, traducido al inglés por Carina del Valle Schorske, es parte de la serie de panfletos 2020 de UDP. “Es imposible imaginar la poesía puertorriqueña contemporánea sin Nicole Cecilia Delgado. Sus proyectos, colaboraciones y energía han permitido que los poetas emergentes se vean a sí mismos como parte de una red más grande, y aunque ella es solo una de muchos creadores, su presencia ha expandido sin lugar a dudas lo que podemos imaginar colectivamente,” escribe Raquel Salas Rivera.
