Heresies is an invocation of Latin American and Caribbean culture, history, and spirituality. Through free verse and poetic forms, the collection is visually charged and sonically rich. The poems incorporate history, legend, and magical realism to create a cross-cultural baroque feeling. Heresies is witty, probing, transgressive, and carnivalesque.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Heresies is a rich, satisfying collection imbued with wit, compassion, and a respectful skepticism for multicultural religious devotion and all its complexities."--Daniel A. Olivas, El Paso Times


"Menes's poems bring to light patterns of personal and spiritual corruption and the power relations between insiders and outsiders on which economic, social, and religious systems are based."--Cincinnati Review


"Heresies hordes detail, combining fact and fiction, and lets symbols accumulate as they do in a culture. It weaves bodily and religious imagery, arousing readers to examine their own beliefs. . . . An intense and masterful undertaking that requires careful dissection."--Prairie Schooner


"Brutally irreverent, reverently made, at once polyphonic and singular in its scope, Heresies is a work of fearless, sublimely syncretic imagination."--Daniel Tobin, author of Belated Heavens
