About the Author
Praise For Poems Of The River Spirit (Pitt Poetry Series)…
"Poems of the River Spirit is more than just a compassionate view of the world of workers in the Pittsburgh area. Guevara's own Hispanic and European roots also turn him toward a wider, almost Whitmanesque vision of the pther people in other geographies. Good work with solid, inventive surprises in almost every page."
"Guevara writes with immense poise and authority. His images are exact and true; his language is raw yet utterly polished. . . .the word multicultural might have been coined for this poet, who alludes to Dante as casually as he deploys Spanish slang. Voices haunt his book. . . ."
