Latino poetry is best characterized by the works of Lorna Dee Cervantes, Cuban-American award-winning Carlos Pintado, Giannina Braschi, Pedro Pietri, Martín Espada, and Alurista. It is written in English, Spanish, or any combination thereof (including Spanglish). It is poetry written by poets in South America, Central America and North America (Mexico).
