“Buzzing Hemisphere reflects a fugitive life when ‘in confinement with one’s gadgets as totems.’ This creolized dada, equal parts mischief and convulsive attack, spins out into abecedarian stanzas and décima verses to reflect the dualities of incorporated territory. In Noel’s countercurrent cadences, where ingenuity beguiles command, ‘buzzing hemisphere’ stands for the location of a geopolitical diagnosis, a hereditary condition, and an acoustic prospectus. In poems that bustle with sonic proxies for the Bronx’s Grand Concourse and with the evidence of at least two islands conquered by market forces, Noel leads us through the stateless hum of moving bodies—English and Spanish exhibited as to manifest that no rendition is impervious to the disobedient remainder. I’m a mirror image of a hemisphere in shards.” —Roberto Tejada, author of Full Foreground

“A crucial contribution to our literary history, In Visible Movement charts the evolution of an increasingly visible movement in the literary arts, shedding light on many related poetries of the past six decades in the process. Noel proposes ‘an understanding of poetry performance as revisionism: operating across and along page and stage,’ an understanding that proceeds from the poets themselves.”—Aldon Lynn Nielsen, author, Integral Music: Languages of African American Innovation

“An exceptional and much needed contribution to literary scholarship, this book will be of interest to anyone interested in the shape of contemporary U.S. literature. It brings together—with clarity, insight, and sophistication—a wide variety of poetic voices in order to weave a compelling analysis of major developments in Nuyorican poetry.”—Rafael Pérez-Torres, author, Movements in Chicano Poetry: Against Myths, against Margins

“Urayoán Noel’s plurilingual, polyphonic, & polymorphous text works are images are performance scores are records of poetry actions are homophonic translations are poems are homages to some of Latin America and the Caribbean’s greatest innovators. Their language is a haunted one. Throughout Noel’s body of work the ghost of Spanish unsettles the English language, disrupting its expansionist ambitions. Ditto for the specter of English in the Spanish lines. The only expansionism here pertains to the field of poetry, and we’re all the luckier for it.” — Mónica de la Torre
