Abstract

The title of this new book of poetry from New York's Latino Lower East Side refers to a drama, La Carreta, by one of Puerto Rico’s most prestigious authors, René Marqués (1919-1979). It is generally considered one of the supreme artistic expressions of the collective Puerto Rican experience. At the end of the play the emigrants decide to leave New York City in an attempt to maintain their integrity and identity, to till the earth in the hills of Puerto Rico.
