Twentieth-century Latin American Poetry
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungLatin Americans have written some of the world's finest poetry in the twentieth century, as the Nobel Prizes awarded to Gabriela Mistral, Pablo Neruda, and Octavio Paz Attest. Yet this rich literary production has never been gathered into a single volume that attempts to represent the full range and the most important writers until now. Here, under one cover, are the major poets and their major works, which appear both in the original language (Spanish or Portuguese) and in excellent English translations.
Pressestimmen"A very rich and illuminating new anthology that covers the entire sweep of Latin American poetry in the 20th century... For everyone who thinks only of Pablo Neruda when they think of Latin American poetry, or of Neruda and Cesar Vallejo and Octavio Paz, this book will be a revelation." Robert Hass, Washington Post Book World "One can say positively of this anthology that it will prove a timely stimulus to seek out the poetry of a number of lesser known Latin American writers." Times Literary Supplement "Nothing in print that I know of will serve the general reader so generally or lastingly as this anthology." Ronald Christ, Professor of English, Rutgers University
