"In the Hispanic American classic Empire of Dreams, Giannina Braschi calls for a revolution in poetry--a revolution against the Latin American Boom. New York City becomes the site of liberation for its marginal characters who seek to experience the center of power, of meaning, of feeling, and of personal identity.
