Red Hot Salsa is a book of collected bilingual poems written from the perspective of the Hispanic youth living in the United States

Carlson follows up Cool Salsa (1994) with another bilingual collection of poems that appear in both Spanish and English. Included are many well-known writers, such as Gary Soto and Luis J. Rodriguez, who appeared in the first volume, as well as emerging poets. Red Hot Salsa is a book of collected bilingual poems written from the perspective of the Hispanic youth living in the United States. The book has the poems in English first, and then in Spanish. There is no rhyming pattern to the poems.

While the subtitle of this collection is poems about growing up bilingual in the United States and was perhaps geared toward children, these poems are mature and appropriate for an adult audience. Likewise, the poetry here highlights the fun, cool salsa of being bilingual and should urge English speakers to study Spanish.

Topics for poems extend from hot dogs to learning English to the revolution in Nicaragua. What all of the selections have in common is the adolescent experience at the core of the poem. 1st ed. External-identifier.

Here is the glory―and pain―of being Latino American.

Latino Americans hail from Cuba and California, Mexico and Michigan, Nicaragua and New York, and editor Lori M. Carlson has made sure to capture all of those accents. With poets such as Sandra Cisneros, Martín Espada, Gary Soto, and Ed Vega, and a very personal introduction by Oscar Hijuelos, this collection encompasses the voices of Latino America. By selecting poems about the experiences of teenagers, Carlson has given a focus to that rich diversity; by presenting the poems both in their original language and in translation, she has made them available to us all.

As you move from memories of red wagons to dreams of orange trees to fights with street gangs, you feel Cool Salsa's musical and emotional cross rhythms. Here is a world of exciting poetry for you, y tú también.

I was hoping this would be appropriate for my primary students but I was taken back by some unexpected references to beer and sex. I guess more for middle/high school?

I teach Latino students working on both English and Spanish. This is a wonderful book to use in class. The poems are beautiful and I'm going to be able to do a lot of activities with them.

I teach high school Oral Interpretation (mostly poetry) for ESL students... these are great because of the dual language text and relevant themes. Screen through for sexual and/or adult themes if you're sharing with a young audience. Otherwise, enjoy!! Beautiful poetry... well-rounded collection.

I love this little book of Spanish and English poems that so well captures the experience of growing up bilingual and / or as an immigrant in the United States. Although that is not my personal experience, I have been an ESL teacher for 25 years, and Spanish is my second language. I have watched many students from a wide variety of first languages and cultures go through experiences similar to those expressed in the poetry. I think this inexpensive book is a great addition to the study of poetry in ESL, bilingual, or literature classes, and can inspire bilingual / bicultural students to express their own feelings and experiences in poetry.

Running out of good bilingual books for my teenaged nephew & niece. Thanks for quick delivery.

Great read! I used the poems for an after school program and then had students create their own poems based on their cultural heritages. Then they shared. They loved it!

Purchased this book as a supplement for my Spanish class and my students loved the poems. They all felt like they identified with the different poems and get to see a different perspective of others growing up in the US.
Good book.
