Item description for Central America in My Heart / Centro America En El Corazon by Oscar Gonzales...

In Central America in My Heart / Centro America en el corazon, Gonzales expresses nostalgia for the beauty of his native Honduras, sharing his passion and sense of loss. Vacillating between rage and undying love, Gonzales's poems express his deep cultural appreciation for the people of his homeland while he reveals their struggles and berates a corrupt and unjust political and economic system. Inspired by Pablo Neruda, Roberto Sosa, and Jorge Luis Borges, Gonzales hopes to lessen the antipathy within Honduras and awaken a social consciousness through his poems.

Evokes images of Paradise where pure love and time carry the reader to an eternal land of breathtaking beauty  Jan 26, 2007
When I read "Central America in My Heart", I travel through the mystical landscape of Latin America and instantly feel the author's love for his homeland. The poems, named after all the major cities of Central America, evoke images of Paradise where pure love and time carry the reader to an eternal land of breathtaking beauty. Once settled in the U.S., we feel the author's realization that he can never go back to the daily memories of his childhood in his native land. Finally when he returns home, he describes the political and economical injustices through his political poems, which call on all of us to awaken to the notion of relentless commitment and love to our family, to our immediate community and to the inequities of our world. You will set this book down, inspired and moved to do something that makes a difference in the lives of those less fortunate that you.
A heartfelt and mystical collection of poems  Jan 19, 2007
Central America in My Heart is a heartfelt and mystical collection of poems that make you feel the brevity of life, the love of the homeland and the intensity of justice and freedom. In a beautiful English translation the poems describe the search for meaning in life and the breathtaking landscapes and culture of Latin America. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book one day at a time and I highly recommend it. It is a great book that can help with daily contemplation. The poetry reminded me of Pablo Neruda.
