Miami Century Fox
Legna Iglesias Rodriguez
Paz Prize for Poetry
Translated by Eduardo Aparicio.
A bilingual—English and Spanish—collection by the 2017 winner of The Paz Prize for Poetry, Miami Century Fox is a delightful, seductive read. Sonnets? Rhyme and meter? Yes, along with a delicious serving of irony and wit. This is one very smart collection of poems—a loving and sly portrait of Miami and the immigrant experience in the twenty-first century.
The Paz Prize for Poetry is presented by the National Poetry Series and The Center for Writing and Literature at Miami Dade College and is awarded biennially. Named in the spirit of the late Nobel Prize–winning poet Octavio Paz, it honors a previously unpublished book of poetry written originally in Spanish by an American resident.
