Antonio Guzman Gomez

Antonio Guzman Gomez is a poet of the Maya Tseltal community. As the contemporary literature of Maya Tseltal develops, Antonio has chosen to write in the haiku form because he would like other traditions outside of the West to be a part of his mother tongue’s literary formation. Guzman Gomez’s translator, Kiran Bhat, believes that his poetry and its cross-pollination between these four linguistic cultures (Japanese, Maya Tseltal, Spanish, and English) has created works of art deserving of international attention.

Antonio Guzman Gomez's work featured in Stand Magazine comprises one contribution of poetry.
