    DescriptionThe centennial edition of major Filipino writer Jose Garcia Villa's collected poetry Known as the ?Pope of Greenwich Village, ? Jose Garcia Villa had a special status as the only Asian poet among a group of modern literary giants in 1940s New York that included W. H. Auden, Tennessee Williams, and a young Gore Vidal. But beyond his exotic ethnicity, Villa was a global poet who was admired for ?the reverence, the raptness, the depth of concentration in [his] bravely deep poems? (Marianne Moore). "Doveglion" (Villa's pen name?for dove, eagle, and lion) contains Villa's collected poetry, including rare and previously unpublished material.
