What is a Hispanic sonnet? It is a 15-line, free-verse poem with a separated last line as its own stanza. Each Hispanic sonnet's second and final stanza-that lonely little manmade island-serves as its volta, or turn, meaning that where the poem ends in idea, tone, or spirit is not necessarily where it begins.
Let it be known, then: a Hispanic sonnet is not really a sonnet.

Vincent Cooper's INFIDELIS is a powerful collection of poetry that delves into the life of a Chicano outcast, drawing from the author's personal experiences as a Marine. Through lyric and Blues poetry, Cooper paints a vivid picture of the 9/11 era, capturing the raw and authentic emotions that accompanied his journey. The poems take readers on a transformative exploration, starting with Cooper's decision to enlist and continuing through the intense trials of boot camp, the joys and challenges of fatherhood and marriage, and his subsequent struggles. INFIDELIS is a testament to the power of poetry to convey the complexities of one's lived experiences and to illuminate the shared humanity that lies within us all.
