The Codex Mojaodicus collects three novels-in-verse --"My Sweet Conquistador," "Chaley Way," and "The Pocho Codex" -- all of which mine, mime, record and disgorge the impressions and dissertations of language as it is uttered, stuttered, and felt in a variety of tongues and heads. In these theatrical poems, Alvarez documents a multilingual field, tracing a Xicano genome over and above.
