From Boy to IRO
 

Authored by Iro Burgos

From Boy to IRO by IRO is an autobiographical collection of poetry that highlights social dilemmas and urban lifestyle. This collection is quickly reshaping the academic canon of Latino American Literature. It is currently acknowledged within CUNY courses due to the spotlight it places on the sociopolitical struggles and experimental poetic forms. The text provokes in depth class discussions and writing regarding new forms of masculinity, cultural hybridization as well as the construction of gender and sexuality. Students are introduced to a multicultural expression. From Boy to IRO fuses inner-city culture, poetic forms (that originated in places as far as Asia and Spain), and the English language.
