Luna, Luna: Creative Writing Ideas from Spanish, Latin American, and Latino Literature
Edited by Julio Marzán 248 pp.
In these 21 lively essays, teachers and writers tell how they have used Spanish, Latin American, and Latino literature to inspire their students to create their own poems and stories. The literary models are drawn from both Spain and the Americas, and range from such early 20th century masters as Federico García Lorca and Pablo Neruda to contemporary writers like Sandra Cisneros. Among the distinguished contributors are Julia Alvarez, Martin Espada, and Naomi Shihab Nye.
