About the book:

The result of a 20-year collaboration between poet Edward Dorn and scholar Gordon Brotherston, The Sun Unwound gathers together the disparate voices of oppressed Americans through the centuries: the hymns, songs, and prayers of Mesoamericans and other native peoples; the verse of eight Latin American guerrillas of the 1960s; and works by three of Latin Americas most important avant-garde poets of the twentieth century. The Native Americans saw their cultures obliterated, most of the guerrillas died in their struggles, and the modernists have faced persecution, prison, and torture for their left-wing convictions. Previously untranslated or unavailable to most North Americans, their poems offer a striking counterpoint to the colonialist, capitalist, Anglo-Saxon ethos.
