. . . one of the few genuine poetic voices to come out of the Cuban diaspora.

—Gustavo Pérez Firmat, Linden Lane Magazine


Medina speaks in many voices, some of them soft and keening, some loud with protest, and all of them reverberate with anger or sorrow at the human condition.

—Michael Kiernan, The Washington Post


Medina is a gifted poet with a piercingly memorable vision.

—Henry Taylor, The Washington Times


The pure pleasure of reading Pablo Medina's poetry is a measure of its lyric power, its spare and elegant language, the hairpin turn of its metaphors, the emotional ambience of its landscapes, its mating of sexual exuberance and historical melancholy.

—Eleanor Wilner
