The Anti-Poetry of Salvador Villanueva
I found Villanueva to be ahead of his time, working a craft that would be called “meta-modern” by some, an innovative style in which the reader participates in the process of the author’s work. I was immediately taken by its apparent simplicity, which caused his work to stand apart from most of the poetry I knew from my island. I would later find out that he was ahead of his time in the art of letters in Puerto Rico.
