The Oxford Book of Latin American Poetry

Edited by Cecilia Vicuña and Ernesto Livon Grosman

Here is the first anthology to present a full range of multilingual poetries from Latin America, covering over 500 years of a poetic tradition as varied, robust, and vividly imaginative as any in the world. Editors Cecilia Vicuñ a and Ernesto Livon-Grosman present a fresh and expansive selection of Latin American poetry, from the indigenous responses to the European conquest right up to the experimental, visual and oral poetries being written and performed today. In addition such giants Cd'esar Vallejo, Vicente Huidobro, Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz, Haroldo and Augusto de Campos, and Gabriela Mistral, the editors have included a selection of vital but lesser known poets such as Pablo de Rohka, Blanca Varela, and Cecilia Meireles, as well as previously untranslated works by Simón Rodríguez, Bartolomé Hidalgo, Oliverio Girondo, Rosa Araneda, and many others.
