Reaching for the Mainland and Selected New Poems
Author: Judith Ortiz Cofer
Publisher: Bilingual Press (1995)
This work includes a selection of new poems as well as the original poems from Reaching for the Mainland, a body of poems that appeared in the collection Triple Crown. These new poems reflect the author's growth in her art and also expand upon some themes that run through the earlier poem particularly those dealing with family and cultural issues.
