    The Smile on Smokey Mountain and Other Poems

    Emmanuel Torres

    Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1991
    Like the author’s previous books of poetry, The Smile on Smokey Mountain and Other Poems deals with themes of alienation in cities, the doubtful comforts of material progress, and living in a world without assurances. The present volume also shows increased interest in a broad range of social-realist issues, from mass poverty and insurgency to the tyranny and abuses of the Marcos martial-law era to the destruction of the environment.
