This study examines poetry from female poets in Guatemala born between 1939 and 1971. The poems originate from a literary seminar in Guatemala where Cuban and Guatemalan female poets shared their literature, however, for the purpose of this study only the poetry from the Guatemalan poets was reviewed. The poems were placed into different categories and examined through the lens of that specific category. It is proposed in this study that the poems can be classified into three main groups: the first category that encompasses intertextualities, the second category that includes women involved in society as active participants and in revolutionary movements in Guatemala, and the third category that includes women through the lens of the environment and their role within it.
