The poems in Montejo's SCULPTED STONES give lyric expression to the feelings of exile and to the (sometimes comic) difficulties of living in a foreign culture.

Throughout this book, Montejo extols the values of the Maya culture and denounces the Guatemalan government's attempts to destroy the Indian society. At times with tenderness, at times with humor, at times with scathing irony, Montejo examines nature, politics, and recorded history to get at the truths of the present and the past.
