Explorations in Sights and Sounds
With this, her first anthology, the New York born Puerto Rican poet Sandra Maria Esteves should establish herself as the "first lady" among the Latin poets in that city. Esteves, thirty-three, whose poetry has appeared before in twenty magazines1 and who is an acknowledged painter, combines in her best work her own ghetto experience with nature symbolism, political, cultural and racial awareness and a determined woman's perspective.
