La Hija Del Jardinero: Poetry From Your Gardener's Daughter explores the relationship between identity and poetic expression, focusing on the experience and artistic product of the bilingual poet. The prose discusses the role of the poet as she finds limits in current language and exploits those limits to craft meaningful poetry distinctive to her identity. Additionally, the prose describes methods through which personal experience, history, nostalgia, mysticism, and the dream state contribute to and are expressed through the creative process.
Poetry included in La Hija Del Jardinero ranges from free verse narrative poems to typographic experiment and examines subjects of heritage, local and regional history specific to the settings of Los Angeles and Mexico, the shortcomings of translation, magical realism, and unfulfilled romantic love.
