    Others Will Enter the Gates: Immigrant Poets on Poetry, Influences, and Writing in America

    Abayomi Animashaun

    "The range of voices and the experiences those voices represent in OTHERS WILL ENTER THE GATES: IMMIGRANT POETS ON POETRY, INFLUENCES, AND WRITING IN AMERICA provide the reader with an entrance into other worlds and other ways of seeing and walking in those worlds. Our notions of identity, of transition and transformation, of the translation of language and culture, of the very idea of documenting who or what a person fundamentally is, are called into question by these probing and provocative essays. This is a striking and essential collection, one in which the reader vicariously becomes an immigrant of sorts, allowed to pass over personal and national borders, ferried along by the beautiful and vital prose of some of the finest poets working in the U.S. today."
    —Todd Davis, author of IN THE KINGDOM OF THE DITCH and THE LEAST OF THESE
