After Chavéz’ death in 1992, Anaya wrote this poem eulogizing the man and his life’s work. Echoing Shelley’s elegy on the death of John Keats, the poem expresses the grief of la gente, but closes by calling all peoples together to continue the non-violent struggle for freedom and justice.

The book—endorsed by the César Chavéz Foundation—includes an essay by Anaya detailing the effect that Chavéz had on his own vision and a chronology of Chavéz’ life.

Besides being the author of numerous novels and children’s books, Mr. Anaya has been called the godfather of Chicano literature and un hijo del pueblo for his work as an activist for the literature of his people and his region.

He lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.Artist Gaspar Enriquez is nationally known for his super-realistic, airbrush paintings of young men and women from the barrios of his hometown El Paso.
